About this Item

Original wraps. 4to. 31 pages. 26 cm. Third edition. Music and libretto by Abraham Wolf Binder, Judas Maccabeus, An Oratorio in Two Parts. "Preface to Third Edition: When this oratorio was first performed by a group of young people at the Y. M. H. A. In 1917, music had just begin to play a part in Jewish education in this country. Since that time, it has found a definite place in the curricula of religious schools and other Jewish educational centers. The usefulness of this oratorio has grown from year to year, for it has been performed innumerable times from coast to coast in this country in a variety of ways, first as an oratorio, second, as an opereretta with costumes and scenery. A few years ago, it was presented as a 'Maccabean Pageant' in Los Angeles, with interspersed spoken dialogue. It has also been done in Hebrew. " (Preface) Abraham Wolf Binder (1895–1966) "was an American Jewish composer and scholar active in the intellectual and artistic Jewish music circles of early 20th-century New York. Revered alike as a composer, pedagogue, and writer, Binder also founded the Jewish Music Forum. .As a composer, Binder is remembered chiefly for his numerous liturgical choral settings, which include many individual prayers as well as entire services. 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. He also wrote several classically oriented Hebrew and Yiddish art songs, which may be considered worthy components of the aggregate American Jewish lieder repertoire.
