SEPHARDIC HAZZANUT PROJECT

The Following was copied from here

In Jewish life, Shabbat is a very important day of the week. It is a day families get together to pray, sing and celebrate. There are many traditions, customs and laws associated with the Shabbat day. On Friday evening we begin our prayers with Minha, followed by Kabbalat Shabbat (these are perakim of Tehillim and Piyutim to herald the beginning of the Shabbat), Shir Hashirim (one of the five Megilot that is written by King Solomon) and Arbit.

At the Friday night dinner, we sing Eshet Hail and say the Kiddush (prayer before a meal on Shabbat). On Shabbat morning, we say the Shahrit prayer. Following Shahrit, we read a parasha from the Torah (see Torah section in Tanach webpage). After that we have the musaf prayers. Prior to the Shabbat lunch, we have Kiddush as well.

In the late afternoon, we come back to the synagogue for the Minha and Arbit prayers. After Arbit, Havdalah is said to conclude the Shabbat. In the Havdalah we pray for success and good health for the upcoming week. Once a month, a few days after Rosh Hodesh we say the Birkat Halebana (prayer for the new moon) following Havdalah. In the future I hope to add some of the pizmonim that we sing on Shabbat.

"What maqam do we use for...?" is a common question I get. The following is one version that is based on what I have learned over the years:
1. Friday Mincha is done in maqam Sigah.
2. Kabbalat Shabbat in maqam Nawah and Arbit in Maqam Nahwand
3. Each week Shahrit is prayed in a different maqam (see Hazzanut section). The "Adonai  
    Melech" is sung in the maqam of the week. From Baruch SheAmar till Nishmat is done in
    Maqam Bayat unless the maqam of the week is Bayat. In that case we use another maqam
    like Nahwand or Agam.
4. For Musaf we use the Maqam Shahrit of upcoming week
5. Mincha Shabbat is done in Maqam Rast.

6. Mosae Shabbat Arbit is done in Maqam Bayat.

MAQAMOT מקאמות
RAST
ראסת
Rast is the first maqam in the arrangement of the Oriental maqamot 
and therefore represents a beginning. The word Rast sounds similar to 
RAS, the Arabic word for head. This maqam is used on Shabbat Minha.
AJAM
עג'ם
Maqam Ajam originated in Persia (Iran), and therefore it was named 
after Persia, which translates to Ajam in Arabic. Ajam is the Arabic 
equivalent of the Western Major scale.
BAYAT
ביאת
Maqam Bayat is a slumber sounding maqam and does not necessarily
imply a given theme. It is the most commonly used of the Syrian
Maqamot. This maqam is used for Arbit Saturday night.
NAHWAND
נהוונד
Nahwand is named after a city in Iranian Kurdistan. This maqam was
popular in Iran and Turkey before it made its way down to Syria and
Egypt. Nahwand is the closest equivalent of the Western Minor Scale.
SABA
צבא
The Arabic word Sabi means baby boy, and this is why Maqam Saba 
is used for the Berit Milah (circumcision). Saba is used for perashiot 
that contain either births, covenants (berit), or the mention or 
reference to an army (Saba).
SIGAH
שיגא
Maqam Sigah, from the Persian for "third place", is applied when
there are special Torah readings. This maqam is usually used for
the weekday prayers as well as the Syrian way of chanting the
Torah with the cantillations (Ta'amim).
HIJAZ
חג'אז
Hijaz refers to Saudi Arabia, which in Arabic is still known as the
Hijaz. This maqam, which originated in Saudi Arabia, is used to
mark sad occasions that occur on the calendar, as well as sad
occasions that occur in a given parasha.
