Liturgical Music of Shaar Hashamayim

(London, United Kingdom) Recorded archives of the Spanish & Portuguese liturgical ritual.

The purpose of this website is to provide an online resource of all the congregational melodies sung at the synagogues of the Spanish & Portuguese Jews’ Congregation of London. It is intended for the use of regular congregants, visitors to the community and any other interested parties.

Each page contains recordings of all the congregational melodies used in our communities for that service. The pages are arranged according to the order of the service as per the relevant prayer book, going through all parts of the service which are to be sung by the congregation in order. Where there is a selection of different melodies which may be sung to a given prayer, all of these are given under that prayer title, one after the other.

The vast majority of the recordings on this site have been prepared especially for this purpose by the creator of this site - Eliot Alderman, Director of Music to the Spanish & Portuguese Jews’ Congregation - with the intention of encouraging congregants and visitors to feel they can join in with confidence in synagogue.
Occasionally other authoritative recordings have been included, and these are noted as such when present.
