Album Artists
Notes A group of nine rare cantorial selections have been selected for this album. Here you will find little circulated recordings by well-known and prolific cantors such as Hershman, Kwartin, and Rosenblatt. Also included are masterworks by famous cantors who made very few recordings: Jassinowsky, Schorr, Soorkis, and Steinberg. Each selection is a memorable performance. Taken together they create a remarkable opportunity to experience truly unique and rare cantorial moments.

Recordings restricted by copyright will only play 45 seconds to give you a sense of what that recording originally sounded like. These recordings can be identified by the words (Research Station) in the music player.
