Dayenu! The Musical Legacy of Cantor Michal Hammerman #2

This entry in the archives includes "live" recordings of the two key moments of any High Holiday season, Kol Nidre and Musaf Rosh Hashanah. My father was master of nuance and pace. What remains remarkable to this day is how, with no accompaniment or choir, he was able to make of each service a symphony, probing the deepest meanings of the prayers in the subtlest of ways.
