This award winning book (Winner of the 2008 ETFO Arts & Culture Award) describes Jewish traditional music from around the world, focusing on:

-The distinctive features of Jewish music and how it has entered Church chant and Western art music
-The technical aspects of Jewish music--cantillation (trop) and liturgy (nusah)
-Deeper questions about the nature of music itself, its role in everyday life, and how we learn it and teach it

With numerous music examples, this book traces melodic patterns which recur in Jewish music, and describes the processes by which they are transmitted and evolve.

Much of the material in this book has never been published before.
