The first Jewish Hymnal published outside of the Eastern Seabord, preceeding even Cincinnati. The first Reform congregation in Chicago, Sinai, was founded in 1861; this is their first publication, the scarce Hymnal they published that year for use in their services. "Gesammelt und Hrsg. auf Kosten der Sinai-Gemeinde in Chicago." "In 1861 the Reform Congregation Sinai was founded, a development of the Juedischer Reformverein, organized four years earlier. Its spiritual leader was Bernard Felsenthal , who in 1859 had published Kol Kore Bammidbar ('Voice Calling in the Wilderness'), a German brochure, in favor of reform in Judaism. Three years later Felsenthal founded the Zion Congregation, and was succeeded at Sinai by Isaac Loew Chronik of Koenigsberg. Chronik was the first to publish a German-Jewish magazine in Chicago, Zeichen der Zeit ('Signs of the Time'). A year later Chronik returned to Germany and was succeeded by Kaufman Kohler" (EJ, 2008). The music chosen here reflects the ongoing evolution of the Reform movement in America as is spread West. Only one copy listed in OCLC world cat worldwide (HUC).

    First Publication of Hava Nagila

     

     

  7. Idelsohn, Abraham Z. SEFER HA-SHIRIM: LE-GANE-YELADIM U-LE-VATE-SEFER `AMAMIYIM VE-TIKHONIM, LE-BAYIT ULE-MAKHELAH. Berlin: Yudisher Farlag, 1922. Revised edition, this edition containing first publication of Hava Nagila anywhere. Original boards. 8vo. 168 pages. 23 cm. In Hebrew. Title translates to “Book of Songs: For Kindergartens and National Schools. ” Abraham Zevi Idelsohn was a prominent Jewish musicologist, composer, and cantor. He is perhaps best known for his lyrical contribution to the song Hava Nagila and for his 10 volume work "Thesaurus of Hebrew Oriental Melodies. " (Wikipedia, 2016) In the work for sale here, Idelsohn analyzes various musical modes and intonations that are present in the wide spectrum of Jewish music. Thus, the reader gains a greater understanding of how songs are adapted to the various Jewish cultures of the Diaspora. “‘Hava Nagila’ (Havah Nagilah, ‘Let us rejoice’) is an Israeli folk song traditionally sung at Jewish celebrations. It is perhaps the first modern Israeli folk song in the Hebrew language that has become a staple of band performers at Jewish weddings and bar/bat mitzvah celebrations…. Abraham Zevi Idelsohn (1882–1938), a professor at Hebrew University, began cataloging all known Jewish music and teaching classes in musical composition; one of his students was a promising cantorial student, Moshe Nathanson, who (with the rest of his class) was presented by the professor with a 19th-century, slow, melodious, chant (niggun or nigun) and assigned to add rhythm and words to fashion a modern Hebrew song. There are competing claims regarding Hava Nagila's composer, with both Idelsohn and Nathanson being suggested. The niggun he presented has been attributed to the Sadigurer Chasidim, who lived in what is now Ukraine, which uses the Phrygian dominant scale common in music of Transylvania. The commonly used text was probably refined by Idelsohn. In 1918, the song was one of the first songs designed to unite the early Yishuv [Jewish enterprise] that arose after the British victory in Palestine during World War I and the Balfour Declaration, declaring a national Jewish homeland in the lands newly liberated from Turkey by the Allies and entrusted to Britain under the Treaty of Versailles. Although Psalm 118 (verse 24) of the Hebrew Bible may have been a source for the text of ‘Hava Nagila’, the expression of the song and its accompanying hora (‘circle’) dance was entirely secular in its outlook” (Wikipedia, 2016).

Solomon Rosowsky (1878 –1962) was a cantor (hazzan) and composer, and son of the Rigan cantor, Baruch Leib Rosowsky… Rosowsky returned to Riga in 1920 and founded the first Jewish Conservatory there. After a five-year stay, he left for Palestine, where at that time he at first was one of the few professional musicians. The folk music of Palestinian Jews became a major new inspiration for his compositions… He composed stage music for the workers' theater Ohel’, gave lessons and began his path-breaking research into the music of the Bible, which later made his name known all over the world… His latter years he spent in New York, where he taught at the Cantors' Institute of the Jewish Theological Seminary.

  15. Temple Emanu-El, (James Koppel Gutheim) [Felix Adler]. HYMNS FOR DIVINE SERVICE IN THE TEMPLE EMANU-EL. New York: Temple Emanu-El; M. Thalmessinger, 1871. 1st Edition. Modern Cloth, all edges gilt. 12mo. 71 pages; 18 cm. Contains what are almost certainly the first published works of Felix Adler (at 20 years old), founder of the Ethical Culture Movement. James Koppel Gutheim (1817-1886) was the rabbi of Congregation Shangarai Chasset of New Orleans. He was an influential figure in New Orleans, and served as president of the New Orleans Board of Education. “In 1863… he refused to take the oath of allegiance to the Union after New Orleans was recaptured. He fled New Orleans, and served as rabbi to Jewish congregations in Montgomery, Alabama, and Columbus, Georgia. Gutheim returned to New Orleans after the Civil War, to serve as Shangarai Chasset's rabbi, but left to serve in New York’s Temple Emanuel in 1868. In 1872 he once again returned to New Orleans to become minister of the New Orleans Temple Sinai, where he preached until his death.” (Wikipedia, 2016) This hymnal was compiled while Gutheim served at Temple Emanu-el in New York, where Felix Adler’s father, Samuel Adler, had been the Head Rabbi since 1857. At the time, Emanu-El “was the leading Reform congregation in the US.” (Wikipedia, 2016) Most of the 37 hymnals are by Gutheim, but 6 (including 4 original compositions) are by Felix Adler, Samuel Adler’s son. Felix Adler (1851-1933) would later found the Ethical Culture movement. While training to become a Rabbi in Heidelberg from 1871-1873 he was strongly influenced by neo-Katianism notions that one cannot prove or disprove the existence of a deity or immortality, and that morality can be established independently of theology. Giving up his Rabbinic studies, Adler founded the Ethical Culture Society in 1877 and the Workingman’s School (a free elementary school, which would become the Ethical Culture School) in 1878. The four original hymns, written before Adler rejected the notion of a Jewish God, are religious. They also show Adler’s esteem for Education. In “School Hymn,” he writes, “But what flower is so fragrant, so sweet and so fair/As the flower of truth blooming here—.” OCLC lists 9 copies worldwide. SUBJECT(S): Jewish hymns.

ISBN: 3950004300; 9783950004304; National Library: 921365640. “Salomon Sulzer (1804 -1890) was an Austrian hazzan (cantor) and composer… In 1820 Sulzer was appointed cantor at Hohenems, where he modernized the ritual, and introduced a choir. At the instance of Rabbi Isaac Noah Mannheimer of Vienna he was called to the Austrian capital as chief cantor in 1826. There he reorganized the song service of the synagogue, retaining the traditional chants and melodies, but harmonizing them in accordance with modern views… His responses are tuneful, and though more melodious than the choral chant of the Catholic Church, show a strong resemblance to it. In all his compositions strict attention is paid to the Hebrew text; and a scrupulous adherence to syntactic construction is observed throughout. The collection ‘Zwanzig Gesänge für den Israelitischen Gottesdienst’ (Vienna, 1892) was printed posthumously. In his ‘Denkschrift an die Wiener Cultusgemeinde’ he sums up his ideas on the profession of cantor. Sulzer, who was widely famed as a singer and as an interpreter of Schubert, was a professor at the imperial conservatorium of Vienna, a knight of the Order of Francis Joseph I and a maestro of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome. Universally recognized as the regenerator of synagogal music, he has been called the "father of the modern cantorate"(wikipedia, 2016) SUBJECT(S): Exhibition catalog from 1991. Reformjudentum.

Sheet music for various combinations of voices, partly with piano or organ acc. "Souvenir of the Jewish Women's Congress held under the auspices of the World's Parliament of Religions, " 1893 Columbian Exposition. Includes preface and introductory essay on the liturgical chant of the synagogue. “Songs of Zion—the Souvenir [book] of the Jewish Women’s Congress held under the Auspices of the World’s Parliament of Religions, an auxiliary ('The World’s Congress Auxiliary') of the World’s Columbian Exhibition (World’s Fair) in Chicago in 1893. This sui generis, rather quizzical, and now rare volume was commissioned and sponsored by that Jewish women’s organization through its designated volunteer committee of sixteen women from prominent and philanthropic Chicago families in the city’s business and Reform Jewish community—most if not all of whom could boast German-Jewish lineage. (Included in that committee was the wife of Rabbi Moses—author of the preliminary but replaced edition of the Union Prayerbook—as well as one member identified as 'Miss Sadie American. '). Compiled and edited by Cantors Alois Kaiser and William Sparger, the volume was conceived as a classically acceptable demonstration to the world of Jewish liturgical music heritage and its place in Western culture. With the World’s Fair and the related Parliament of Religions as a convenient forum and an inviting opportunity, it was intended to introduce the Parliament’s non-Jewish delegates and attendees—including distinguished clergymen from many parts of the world, representing virtually every 'legitimate' world religion—to what they perceived as Judaism’s sacred music legacy. Preceded by an introductory essay by the editors on the history of synagogue music, the principal section comprised fifty authentic melodies of minhag Ashkenaz (which in turn included a few adopted tunes from the Western/Amsterdam, or 'Portuguese' tradition). These were all highly stylized in Western-type four-part arrangements and settings, with conventional harmonies and trite harmonic clichés to ensure the appearance of respectability and to mediate anything that might otherwise come across as overly exotic or unrefined in Western terms. ” - Milken Archive.

Original Boards. 4to. viii, 51, 68 pages; 33 cm. In Hebrew. Title translates into English as, “Thesaurus of Hebrew Oriental Melodies: Songs of the Persian, Bukharian, and Dagestan Jews.” “Abraham Zevi Idelsohn (1882 –1938) was a prominent Jewish ethnologist, musicologist and composer, who conducted several comprehensive studies of Jewish music around the world. Idelsohn was born in Feliksberg, Latvia and trained as a cantor. He worked briefly in both Europe and South Africa before emigrating to Palestine in 1905 and establishing a school of Jewish music there in 1919. In 1922 he moved to Cincinnati, Ohio to take a position as professor of Jewish music at Hebrew Union College… Idelsohn is generally acknowledged as the ‘father’ of modern musicology. During his time in Jerusalem, he noted a great diversity of musical traditions among the Jews living in the region. Idelsohn examined these traditional melodies and found recurring motifs and progressions that were not found in any other national music. This suggested a common origin for musical phrases that went back to Israel/Palestine in the first century C.E. He found that these motifs fell into three distinct tonal centers, which corresponded to the Dorian, Phrygian, and Lydian modes of the ancient Greeks. Each of these modes elicited a distinct psycho-emotional response. The Dorian Mode was used for texts of an elevated and inspired nature; the Phrygian for sentimental texts, with their very human outbreaks of feeling, both of joy and grief; and the Lydian was used in composing music for the texts of lamenting and confessions of sins. Idelsohn further categorized and defined these motives as ones that either prepared a musical phrase, began it, or concluded it. His works include the monumental Thesaurus of Hebrew Oriental Melodies (10 volumes, 1914–1932) and Jewish Music (1929). He is considered to be the author of the lyrics of the famous Jewish folk song ‘Hava Nagila.’” (Wikipedia, 2016) SUBJECT(S): Jews -- Music. Synagogue music. Jewish chants. Cantillation.

It was his vocal talent however that brought him to Vienna to study music and the cantorial tradition. In 1842 Deutsch was appointed assistant Cantor under Salomon Sulzer at the Liberal temple in Vienna. Deutsch was deeply influenced by Sulzer - &tm;s work to develop a new cantorial recitative style and liturgical arrangements for the choir. In 1844 Deutsch began working as chief cantor at the Reform Synagogue in Breslau where he formed and lead a choir. In addition, he received a teaching post at the Breslau Theological Seminary, where he taught cantorial music for over 30 years. In 1859, Deutsch helped to found an institute for cantorial training within the Theological Seminary. The support for the new institute marked a shift away from the meshorerim tradition of cantorial apprenticeships and new backing for official programs in teaching seminaries. He also composed choral arrangements for synagogue liturgy in the classical German style which were published in this collection. " (Jewish Music Research Center, 2016).

In 1587 Rossi was engaged as musician and singer at the ducal court of Vincenze I. Of Mantua, where his sister Europa was employed as a singer. That Rossi stood in high favor at this court is evidenced by the fact that he was allowed to appear in public without the yellow badge which other Mantua Jews were at that time obliged to wear. Rossi was a skilled contrapuntist, and he worked assiduously to compose synagogal music with which the old sacred melodies of Zion might be harmoniously combined.

Idelsohn was born in Feliksberg, Latvia and trained as a cantor.

During his time in Jerusalem, he noted a great diversity of musical traditions among the Jews living in the region. Idelsohn examined these traditional melodies and found recurring motifs and progressions that were not found in any other national music. This suggested a common origin for musical phrases that went back to Israel/Palestine in the first century C. E. He found that these motifs fell into three distinct tonal centers, which corresponded to the Dorian, Phrygian, and Lydian modes of the ancient Greeks. Each of these modes elicited a distinct psycho-emotional response. The Dorian Mode was used for texts of an elevated and inspired nature; the Phrygian for sentimental texts, with their very human outbreaks of feeling, both of joy and grief; and the Lydian was used in composing music for the texts of lamenting and confessions of sins. Idelsohn further categorized and defined these motives as ones that either prepared a musical phrase, began it, or concluded it. His works include the monumental Thesaurus of Hebrew Oriental Melodies (10 volumes, 1914–1932) and Jewish Music (1929). He is considered to be the author of the lyrics of the famous Jewish folk song ‘Hava Nagila. ’” (Wikipedia, 2016) Very Good+ Condition. An outstanding copy. (Music-7-22) (ID #36818) $100.00.

His primary work focused on traditional Jewish melodies. The culmination of his research can be found in this work. It is "an almost complete collection of Jewish traditional melodies, of which a second revised and enlarged edition (358 pp. Folio) appeared in 1883. The work contains fifteen hundred and five melodies, in German, Polish, and Portuguese (Sephardic) versions, and is divided into four parts: (1) for the services on week-days; (2) for Sabbath; (3) for the three festivals Pesah, Shabu'ot, and Sukkot; (4) for the two great holidays, Rosh ha-Shanah and Yom ha-Kippurim; together with an appendix containing notes on the liturgy, the reading of the Torah, and directions and formulas for writing betrothal and marriage contracts. The collection is more complete in German and Polish melodies than in Portuguese. Occasionally a fourth version is appended, called by the compiler "Neue Weise, " but this seems to be his own composition or that of other modern cantors.

Some of his once-popular earlier works, such as his children’s oratorio Judas Maccabeus (1919), are long forgotten, but many of his later prayer settings became part of the standard repertoire in Reform congregations and are sung to this day.

At the instance of Rabbi Isaac Noah Mannheimer of Vienna he was called to the Austrian capital as chief cantor in 1826. There he reorganized the song service of the synagogue, retaining the traditional chants and melodies, but harmonizing them in accordance with modern views… His responses are tuneful, and though more melodious than the choral chant of the Catholic Church, show a strong resemblance to it. In all his compositions strict attention is paid to the Hebrew text; and a scrupulous adherence to syntactic construction is observed throughout... Universally recognized as the regenerator of synagogal music, he has been called the "father of the modern cantorate… ‘Shir Tziyyon’ … established models for the various sections of the musical service—the recitative of the cantor, the choral of the choir, and the responses of the congregation—and it contained music for Sabbaths, festivals, weddings, and funerals which has been introduced into nearly all the synagogues of the world.

Additionally, “he was the only major and substantially published American composer of liturgical music known to have been a music director previously in an eastern European khor shul (lit., choral synagogue). The khor shul in particular, however, reflected aspects of western sophistication within a traditional orthodox framework and was an important religious-cultural institution of 19th- and early- 20th-century cosmopolitan eastern European and Russian Jewry. Many of the most famous eastern European cantors served at one time or another in these khor shuls, which were among the most coveted pulpits… Zilberts devoted himself to three principal genres: Hebrew liturgical music, folk-art and quasi-liturgical choral settings, and Yiddish lieder. ” (Naxos, 2016).

Title translates into English as, “Thesaurus of Hebrew Oriental Melodies: The Traditional Songs of the South German Jews. ” “Abraham Zevi Idelsohn (1882 –1938) was a prominent Jewish ethnologist, musicologist and composer, who conducted several comprehensive studies of Jewish music around the world. Idelsohn was born in Feliksberg, Latvia and trained as a cantor. He worked briefly in both Europe and South Africa before emigrating to Palestine in 1905 and establishing a school of Jewish music there in 1919. In 1922 he moved to Cincinnati, Ohio to take a position as professor of Jewish music at Hebrew Union College… Idelsohn is generally acknowledged as the ‘father’ of modern musicology. During his time in Jerusalem, he noted a great diversity of musical traditions among the Jews living in the region. Idelsohn examined these traditional melodies and found recurring motifs and progressions that were not found in any other national music. This suggested a common origin for musical phrases that went back to Israel/Palestine in the first century C. E. He found that these motifs fell into three distinct tonal centers, which corresponded to the Dorian, Phrygian, and Lydian modes of the ancient Greeks. Each of these modes elicited a distinct psycho-emotional response. The Dorian Mode was used for texts of an elevated and inspired nature; the Phrygian for sentimental texts, with their very human outbreaks of feeling, both of joy and grief; and the Lydian was used in composing music for the texts of lamenting and confessions of sins. Idelsohn further categorized and defined these motives as ones that either prepared a musical phrase, began it, or concluded it. His works include the monumental Thesaurus of Hebrew Oriental Melodies (10 volumes, 1914–1932) and Jewish Music (1929). He is considered to be the author of the lyrics of the famous Jewish folk song ‘Hava Nagila. ’” (Wikipedia, 2016) Very Good+ Condition. An outstanding copy. (Music-7-23) (ID #36819) $100.00.
