Purchase From JMRC
Contains Niggunim of various genres, and from various Hassidic dynasties, performed either in solo or group singing (choir or congregation), occasionally with instrumental accompaniment. The Niggunim are taken from a variety of calendar and life-cycle events: Shabbat, Festivals, Zemirot, Tish, Wedding, Dance, Devequt, Marches, Waltzes, etc.
Most of the tracks were recorded in Jerusalem and Benei Berak, others in Kefar Habbad, Rehovot, and one in the US.
All Niggunim have been selected from recordings, made since 1961, which are preserved in the collection of the National Sound Archive (NSA) of the Jewish National and Universitary Library, Jerusalem.
Alongside some Pan-Hassidic Niggunim, this compilation represents the following Hassidic communities: Lubavich, Vizhnitz, Karlin (main part of the corpus); Bobov, Boyan, Slonim, Spinka, Sanz, Kretshniff, Toledot Aharon (fair number of recordings); Amshinov, Biale, Gur, Wurke, Lelov, Modzhitz, Porisov, Shomerei Emunim and others (few examples).
