Description:

100th anniversary edition. Period boards. 8vo. 1 score (32 pages) ; 27 cm. In Hebrew, words in Hebrew and English. "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. Universally recognized as the regenerator of synagogal music, he has been called the "father of the modern cantorate… ‘Shir Tziyyon’ … established models for the various sections of the musical service—the recitative of the cantor, the choral of the choir, and the responses of the congregation—and it contained music for Sabbaths, festivals, weddings, and funerals which has been introduced into nearly all the synagogues of the world. In the compilation of this work he was assisted by some of the best musical composers of Vienna. " (Wikipedia, 2016) This edition of Shir Zion was printed by the Society of American Cantors in commemoration of the 100th birthday of Sulzer. SUBJECT(S) : Synagogue music -- Sabbath services.
