Discovering Jewish Music [9780827608573]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
This title presents Jewish music from the Bible to the present, with musical illustrations and an audio CD. Most of us have experienced Jewish music , whether it's through synagogue attendance, a bar mitzvah celebration, a klezmer concert, or the playing of Hava Nagila at a baseball game. The many different kinds of Jewish music are reflected by the multitude of Jewish communities throughout the world, each having its own unique set of experiences and values. This book puts the music into a context of Jewish history, philosophy, and sociology. Edelman begins 3,000 years ago, with a discussion of music in the Bible, and then examines the nature of folk and liturgical music in the three major Diaspora communities that evolved over centuries, after the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem. From there she explores music of the 20th century, including the explosion of popular music in North America and Israel and its impact on Jews and their musical identities.
AUTHOR: Marsha Bryan Edelman is a professor of music and education at Gratz College in Melrose Park, PA. She has a doctorate in music and music education from Columbia University.
