Neglected sources for the Study of Nineteenth-Century Synagogue Music: The Prefaces to Louis Lewandowski's Kol Rinnah U't'fillah and Todah W'simrah. Annotated Translations

The core of the article is a translation from the German of Lewandowski’s prefaces to his major works of synagogue music. Unfortunately omitted from the editions currently printed by Sacred Music Press, the prefaces provide invaluable material on the evolution of these works, the aims of the composer, and his ideas on synagogue music and hazzanut. The introduction to the article takes issue with aspects of the accounts of Lewandowski found and repeated in the literature.
