Salamone Rossi (c.1570–1630) var en jødisk fiolinist og komponist aktiv i Mantova, Italia.

Adon Olam – nærmest Universets Herre, har vært et innslag i den jødiske liturgi siden 1400-tallet. Her fremføres den av The Zamir Chorale i Boston.

En engelsk gjengivelse av den hebraiske teksten:

The Lord of the Universe who reigned
before anything was created.
When all was made by his will
He was acknowledged as King.

And when all shall end
He still all alone shall reign.
He was, He is,
and He shall be in glory.

And He is one, and there’s no other,
to compare or join Him.
Without beginning, without end
and to Him belongs diminion and power.

And He is my G-d, my living G-d.
to Him I flee in time of grief,
and He is my miracle and my refuge,
who answers the day I shall call.

To Him I commit my spirit,
in the time of sleep and awakening,
even if my spirit leaves,
G-d is with me, I shall not fear.
