New Song of the Month for Passover - Four Melodies for Four Questions

The Jewish Music Research Centre is proud to present a new Song of the Month, "Four Melodies for Four Questions" in which Professor Edwin Seroussi examines "Mah Nishtanah," one of the central texts of the Passover Haggadah. In addition to a deep scholarly analysis, Professor Seroussi has gathered an extensive selection of historical notated and recorded sources for the performance of "Mah Nishtanah." His main finding is the original score of the best-known modern melody for this text.
