The performance of sacred song often involves the talents of cantors, chanters, precentors, and criers--also known as chantres, djaky, psalom-shchniki, hazanim, protopsalti, and muezzins. The present volume explores this unique class of musicians from a variety of perspectives to offer the first survey of its kind. Folklorists join with ethnomusicologists, cantors, and enthusiasts to illuminate the many facets of this rich, living tradition. Robert B. Klymasz is a curator at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. He has published extensively on Slavic traditions in Canada.
