Great Cantorial Singers

Kol b`isha(the prohibition of women singing for men) historically prevented synagogues from allowing a woman to serve as cantor. The artists featured on these discs were acknowledged for their cantorial ability and renditions of famous liturgical recitatives. However, they only performed on the concert stage and almost never as part of a religious service. Kol b`isha was side stepped in the later part of the 20th century by the Reform movement and women were officially enrolled in the School of Sacred Music. The Cantors Institute of the Jewish Theological Seminary followed shortly thereafter. These cantorial schools now regularly graduate as many women cantors as men. The five artists presented here were unique in their stunning performances of the cantorial music of "The Golden Age of Hazzanut."
