Description: 

Overview of the history of Jewish music for the intelligent lay reader as well as more advanced students of Jewish music. Several chapters discuss popular music in Israel and America. Contains some 175 musical examples, and an accompanying CD with 65 tracks. However, it is an uneven catalogue of data from Biblical times to contemporary Israeli popular music lacking criticism or contextualization.
