About this Item

Original Wraps. Folio. 117; 103 pages. 34 cm. Second edition. In Hebrew (transliterated Hebrew) with introduction in French. Liturgy for the Sabbath and High Holidays. Two Volumes: Chants liturgiques de Sabbath - Chants liturgiques des grandes fetes. Volume three (Chants religieux des Israe lites) absent, though normally issued with this edition. Samuel Naumbourg (18151880) , was a "hazzan, composer, and writer. Born in Dennelohe, near Ansbach (Bavaria) , the descendant of almost ten generations of south German hazzanim, Naumbourg received his musical education at Munich and sang there in Maier Kohn 's synagogue choir. After an engagement as choirmaster in Strasbourg, he came to Paris in 1843. In 1845 he was appointed first hazzan at the synagogue in the Rue Notre-Dame-de-Nazareth, under the sponsorship of Jacques Fromental Halévy and with the government authorization to carry out his plans for a thorough reform of liturgic music (which had lapsed into disorder after the death of Israel Lovy in 1832) . In 1847 he published the first two volumes of his Zemirot Yisrael (vol. 1 for the Sabbath, vol. 2 for the High Holidays) , with vol. 3 Hymnes et Psaumes added when the work was reissued in 1864 (repr. 1874, 1954) . . Naumbourg's Zemirot Yisrael achieved an influence comparable to the works of his senior Solomon Sulzer and his junior Louis Lewandowsky . The pieces are set for hazzan and 2- to 4-part choir, with some organ accompaniments and, apart from Naumbourg's own compositions and arrangements, include some melodies by Lovy and two works by Halévy and Meyerbeer . About half of the pieces are based on traditional material, mainly south German. The others reflect the various styles then current in the Parisian grand opera, which 'gave to Naumbourg's work some international features and helped it to become widely known, and much liked and used' (Idelsohn) . " - EJ 2008. Subjects: Synagogue music. OCLC lists 12 copies of this edition. Spine rebacked. Light chipping to title page; light edge wear; overall fresh and clean. Good condition.
