Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume includes multiple renditions of every prayer, thus illustrating the broad diversity within traditional intonation of each prayer mode. In accordance with the traditional role assigned to the prayer leader of each service, renditions are presented at levels appropriate to the lay cantor (baal t'filo) as well the professional cantor (chazz'n). Liturgical texts that were traditionally intoned by cantor and choir, or by choir alone, are also included. Annotative commentary explains the liturgical role and character of each service and analyzes the musical content of each prayer mode within it. It also explains the techniques employed in applying the prayer mode to specific liturgical texts and how the applications reflect the literal as well as spiritual content of the texts. This set comprises four books covering the fourteen weekday liturgical occasions, with annotated commentary.

Book News Annotation:

This four-volume set (in slip case) is the second part in a five-part series on the music of the Eastern Synagogue. The first part, published in 2003, presented the historical background to the music (along with a volume containing examples) and is intended as an introduction to the subsequent volumes. The present set is filled with the songs sung at the weekday daily services (v.1), minor holiday and public fast day services (v.2), and midnight, ninth of <^O>v, and life-cycle event services (v.3). Each of the songs is presented with a musical score. All three volumes contain an index of the contents by prayer text, by rendition and source, and by composer. Volume Four contains the annotation and commentary for the songs, with introductory material describing the various festivals and occasions and notes on how the songs are performed and sung. Kalib, (emeritus, Eastern Michigan U.) has been a practicing cantor for over 50 years.
