Song of the Day: September 17

Written by Joshua Breitzer


September 17, 2015

from Cantor Joshua Breitzer:

Over thirty years since his passing, his musical intellect and innovation continue to pique the interest of listeners and performers alike. Here he combines an important anthem from Holocaust-era ghettos and concentration camps (“I believe with perfect faith in the Messiah’s coming”) with an insistent, inexorable accompaniment that demands our attention.
