History of KAJ Choir
Here we discuss the history of the choir and its early origins. Rav Hirsch commissioned I.M. Japhet to compose for and conduct his choir. His works are a standard in KAJ – most famously with Shir Hama’alos of Motzei Shabbos and used as a hymeneal, much of the High Holiday repertoire, and the arrangement of the old festival themes for choir and chazan.
A more extensive look at the choir and its songbook is needed.
