The Great Cantors

In the Jewish religion, a cantor (also known as a hazzan or chazzan) is trained vocally to lead his or her congregation in songful prayer.

A good number of cantors have left a legacy for all of us, their soulful voices recorded for posterity, singing not only religious songs, but non-religious ones as well.

The "golden age" of cantors came about in the interwar period, i.e. between World Wars I and II.

Within this room you will see, read and hear about some of the more well-known cantors.
