Description: 
Originally published as Die Musik der Juden: Versuch einer geschichtlichen Darstellung ihrer Entwicklung (Zurich, 1951) and reprinted in 1960 and in 1975 (New York: A.S. Barnes) with a translation from German to English by H.S. Stevens. This book is a 'non technical' survey intended for laymen and is one of the earliest and most naïve post-Idelsohnian attempts to trace the entirety of Jewish music in a unileniar historical narrative.
