Thread Name: Hebrew/ Yiddish/ Ladino songs
Subject: RE: Hebrew/ Yiddish/ Ladino songs
Dear Dick, all in good time -- working on Jewish material at the moment. Will post carols when someone puts up a seasonal thread.

Frank I.T.S., Thanks! Sounds like just the sort of thing I'm looking for. Will begin immediate search for a copy.

Dear Laoise, Love Klezmer, already know these excellent ref.'s; especially fond of the Perlman CD's. (Did you know he did a wonderful PBS special in the European birthplaces of the Klezmer music in these collections? Thought it fascinating.) Glad you posted, others may want to visit these sites.

For some reason, Yiddish material seems easier to find than Hebrew, and both are easier to find than Ladino. Like them all, but will admit that the lovliest Jewish folk music I've ever heard was in Ladino. (For those who have never heard of it, Ladino is to Spanish, roughly, as Yiddish is to German.) Anybody got a lead?

Thanks so much,
