Cantor Leib Glantz: From Archives to Synagogue

The creation of the Cantor Leib Glantz Sound ‘n Scores Collection was made possible by a grant from the Nathan Cummings Foundation, with the support and encouragement of Beatrice Cummings Mayer and The Leib Glantz Project, a privately-funded multi-year effort to bring the talents of the legendary cantor, Leib Glantz (1898-1964), into the modern world.

The Leib Glantz Project, edited by Jerry Glantz and published by the Tel Aviv Institute for Jewish Liturgical Music in 2013, is a 500-page book of text, original music scores and sound tracks on CDs. The original digital files from this book provided the raw content for the RSA’s first Sound ‘n Scores feature collection.
