Liturgical music from the synagogue of la Victoire

Playlist (under the article)
Dedicated to the music from the synagogue of la Victoire

The temple of la Victoire was inaugurated on Septembre 9th 1874, after being built during 7 years. Situated on the 44 of la Victoire’s street, in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, this impressive building that can welcome 1800 worshippers became in a few years the symbol of a French Judaism acknowledged and integrated.

As soon as 1870, the rabbinical authority pays a special attention to the music that will be played there. With an imposing choir, two organs and cantors with powerful voices, the music becomes an essential part in the French Jewish cult, in which la Victoire is the banner.

With the publishing of a monumental book dedicated to the synagogue of la Victoire, this playlist puts us on the footsteps of great musical figures that marked the history of this synagogue and of French Judaism in general.
We will hear the moving voices of Shalom Berlinski, Adolphe Attia, Emile Kaçman, Aron Hayoun.
