The Musical Tradition of the Eastern European Synagogue, Volume 3A
The Sabbath Eve Service

Sholom Kalib

Cloth $150.00s    |    978-0-8156-3505-5    |    2017

An exhaustive anthology of the musical liturgy of the Sabbath eve services.

The Sabbath Eve Service, a three-book set, is to date the most comprehensive annotated anthology of authentic musical liturgy of the Eastern European synagogue Friday night Shabbat service. Part of a projected five-volume set, this series is dedicated to the preservation and illumination of the legacy of Eastern European synagogue music, a legacy that represents both the spiritual and artistic core of Jewish life and history. Passed down for generations in the form of oral tradition, over time it inspired prodigious musical creativity resulting in a vast repertoire of cantorial and choral compositions, ranking as one of the great sacred musical collections of the world.

This music has never before been completely archived or documented. With The Sabbath Eve Service, Kalib is rescuing that segment of this cherished heritage, making it accessible for generations to come.
