The Recorded Sound Archives (RSA) is a unit of FAU Libraries Special Collections department. We are located in the Wimberly Library on FAU's Boca Raton campus.

Originally established in 2002 as a small project dedicated to the preservation of recorded Jewish music, it has matured into a robust digitization operation for all types of sound recordings.

Notes These seven cantors are among the greatest representatives of the Eastern European style of cantorial art. There are many points of similarity in the biographies of the cantors on this record. They were all born in Russia, began singing in well-known synagogue choirs as very small boys, and where they received their first Jewish musical training.

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.
