Franz Schubert and the Vienna Synagogue
Originally published in Choral Journal, August 1997, pp. 9-15.
Franz Schubert is the only great composer before the twentieth century to compose a setting in Hebrew of the liturgy for the synagogue. This article examines Schubert's unique composition and places it in the context of Vienna's social, cultural, and religious life in the early nineteenth century.
