Mordechai Hershman

Hershman (1888-1940) ranks among the great cantors of the golden age of Jewish cantorial music at the start of the twentieth century. His mellow tenor voice thrilled his audiences, and his cantorial arias are now classics of the Ashkenazik cantorial repertoire. His most famous melodies include "Aylu Devarim", "Akavia ben Mahalael" and "Modim Anachnu Lecha". In addition to liturgical material, Hershman also recorded Yiddish songs and opera selections.
