Liturgical songs of the Ashkenazi Jews - The Jewish Choral of France

As part of the day of study Vox Aurea-Via Sacra 2014, dedicated to Jewish sacred music, we had the pleasure and honor to attend the concert by the Jewish Choral of France under the direction of Hector Sabo …

The Jewish Choral of France is composed of around 40 chorists. Raphaël Cohen, the great internationally renowned cantor is the titled soloist. Pierre Lumbroso accompanies the choral at the piano.

The Jewish Choral of France was born in October 2006 under the aegis of the APAC (Association for the promotion of cantorial art), in partnership with ACIP (Consistorial Israelite association of Paris.

Since its creation, it performed in many places such as the UNESCO, in theatres and in serveral synagogues of France.

The choral’s repertoire is mainly centered around Hebraic liturgical music, Yiddish songs, Ashkenazi and Sefardi popular songs and Israeli songs. Hector Sabo does the musical arrangements for men’s voices.
