Popular Yiddish songs

An album featuring 13 popular Yiddish songs, harmonized and conducted by Jean Golgevit


Sound samples below

The lyrics of the songs which feature in this CD — translated by Batia Baum — are all present in the eponym musical score compilation which comprise 38 Yiddish songs, Oyfn Veg, harmonized for choir from 2 to 6 voices by Jean Golgevit and published by the Maison de la Culture Yiddish in Paris. The user can thus, without knowing Yiddish, understand the song and perform it in its original language.
This audio support, by proposing an execution of the melodies and of the choral singing, allows to appropriate this repertoire and type of music, of which the interest goes now much beyond the Jewish circles.
