Cantors: A Faith In Song (2003)

Jewish Music

Three Cantors: Naftali Herstik, Alberto Mizrahi, Benzion Miller, together and individually perform a concert of Jewish secular and religious music at the historic Portuguese Synagogue in Amsterdam, which dates to 1675; the performance took place on September 10th and 11th 2003. 


The music was arranged by Benedict Weisser. Accompanying the three cantors are The Netherlands Theater Orchestra and London's Ne'imah Singers, an all-male choir, with Jules van Hessen conducting. Alberto Mizrahi is affiliated with the Anshe Emet Synagogue, Chicago; Naftali Herstik with the Great Synagogue, Jerusalem; and Benzion Miller with Young Israel Beth-El of Borough Park, New York.
