Skverer tune

Title

Skverer tune

Date

1948

Description

HASIDIC [sic] SONG without words, was a MALE song. Hence few women are carriers... The first four tunes were taken off a wire recorder owned by Lazar Axelbank, who recorded his family singing at a house party... The question marks indicate doubt as to the type of NIGN (or tune) this might be... It may or may not be a Hasidic tune. Many tunes were table songs tunes [sic], during festivals and Sabbath and holiday meals... Mr. Fried states (in Yiddish) his grandfather was a Khusid of the Skverer Rebbe and he often sang this on Shabbos - zmiros - and on various other occasions. 41897 Ruth Rubin tape was digitized.

Frid [sic] joins Yudin here [Note from tape log inside box of tape 8:] I recorded AVREML YUDIN first in 1947 on disks. Subsequently, these disk recording were transferred to tape. That is why the “cliking sound” is heard on these early recordings. I taped Avreml Yudin many times later, as the dates above indicate. He sang many of the old tunes over and over again and the quality hardly changed through the years.
