This volume contains works inspired by the Jewish musical tradition, arranged for viola (or alternatively for violoncello) and organ. The music takes its bearings on the inimitable and highly emotional melodies of synagogue chant and Jewish folk music. The pieces are suitable for worship, private devotions as well as concert performance and can easily be tackled by amateur musicians.

The arrangements shed light on a little-known but valuable repertoire. The Foreword (Ger/Eng) provides an historical overview of organ music in the synagogue, where the instrument has found use in solo performance and accompaniment since the 19th century, especially in the wake of the Jewish Reform movement.
