A must for anyone who leads a Seder, this beautifully illustrated book will guide leaders in how to chant the Hebrew narrative of the Passover Seder. It revives the traditional Ashkenazi style of chanting that was heard at Sedarim in central Europe. There are twenty-three notated musical examples with English transliterations. The book is accompanied by a CD with all of the musical examples. Illustrations are high-quality reproductions of 16th-century woodcuts, making this a beautiful Jewish art book as well.
There are many collections of tunes for the Passover Seder but no examples of an authentic Ashenaz method of chanting the texts in the Haggadah. Wohlberg’s contribution is unique.
