This book clearly presents concepts which experienced hazzanim know instinctively but have not yet articulated.” ~Raymond Goldstein, Jerusalem

A guide to the authentic cantorial improvisation in the Jewish modes, with examples from the master composers.Immunim I explains the Adonai Malach, Ahavah Rabbah, Magen Avot, Ukrainian Dorian Hexachord, Seliha Manner, and Amidah Pentatonic Aspects.

Examples are drawn from from classical cantorial works of Eastern, Central and Western Europe: Sulzer, Lewandowski, Baer, Wodak, Deutch, Birnbaum, Gerowitch, Ogutch and Lachmann. Knowledge of the modes and the ability to apply them to the liturgy is a skill essential for the pulpit hazzan.
