One of the great voices of the French Ashkenazic cantorial art!
This collection gathers discs, sheet music and varied archives (photographies, posters…) tracing back the life and work of Jacques Chalude (1914-1997), who was at first a Yiddish singer known as “Ben Baruch”, before becoming a cantor in the synagogue of Notre-Dame-de-Nazareth (Paris).
This important collection, which numbers more than 440 documents (among which beautiful painted 78 RPM discs) was given to the EIJM by his son Joël Chalude. It is available for consultation on the catalogue of our collections (browse the Jacques Chalude collection) or by taking an appointment with the European Institute of Jewish Music (email@example.com)
