An informative site which focuses on Klezmer music and the Klezmer revival. It provides an up-to-date calendar of events all over the world. It also contains links to articles, instrument shops, organizations, bands, sources of sheet music, and recordings.
The objective of this site is to provide a means of promoting Jewish Liturgical Music (JLM), music that is part of our Jewish musical heritage, which is in danger of becoming forgotten through disuse. Already today the music of some 1,700 JLM composers lays gathering dust on shelves of institutions and individuals around the world. This site will provide a centralized location for JLM music in electronic formats, and information available that would only normally be obtained from specialized libraries around the globe.
The Foundation for New Jewish Liturgical Music seeks to foster new music for Jewish congregational use and expose wider audiences to innovations in Jewish religious music. Shalshelet promotes the creation and spread of new Jewish liturgical music by looking for the answers to these questions: Which congregations are singing different tunes? Who is writing and leading these new compositions? How can these compositions be found, collected, and shared?
This is the online version of Orbis Musicae, an international musicological journal published by the Department of Musicology of Tel Aviv University. While the journal publishes articles and book reviews (mostly in English, but with occasional contributions in German and French) dealing with all aspects of musicology, the editors have attempted in the past to emphasize the music of the Middle East and of the Mediterranean basin. The pages of Orbis Musicae contain studies by some of the world’s best-known musicologists and are often illustrated with musical examples and other materials.
