1st Edition. Original Paper Wrappers. 8vo. 143 pages. Includes photos and other illustrations. 24 cm. In German. 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. OCLC lists 7 copies worldwide, none in North America. Previous owners’ sticker on title page, otherwise very good condition (music 7-1). Bookseller Inventory #
