from Cantor Joshua Breitzer:

What Wolf did for German lieder, Lazar Weiner did for Yiddish art song. 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.
