Choral Music of Shearith Israel

2003

This recording was produced in 2003 as a project of the Jacques Monis Cohenca Music Fund of Congregation Shearith Israel, as part of Shearith Israel's 350th anniversary celebrations. 

This CD was prepared under the direction of Rabbi Dr. Marc D. Angel. The production and editing of the music were done by Mr. Leon Hyman, Shearith Israel's Choirmaster. 

In 1998, Mrs. Emilia Cohenca and family established a Music Fund at Congregation Shearith Israel in memory of the late Mr. Jacques Monis Cohenca, a devoted congregant who attended services at Shearith Israel regularly. He deeply appreciated the magnificent musical traditions of this historic Congregation. 

This album is available for purchase as a CD through the Synagogue's "Online Store".  It was recently released digitally and can be downloaded or streamed from numerous sources including:  YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon.
