majesty of hallel

"The Majesty of Hallel” is the third performance in our Divine Majesty series, featuring the great masterpieces of nineteenth century Jewish liturgical music. This all-new program presents inspiring Psalm settings from the great synagogues of Vienna, Berlin, Paris and London — music by Lewandowski, Sulzer, Naumbourg, Halévy, Alkan and Mombach. Maestro Josh Jacobson and the Zamir Chorale of Boston team up again with Cantor Peter Halpern of Temple Shalom of Newton to present a program of rarely-heard music that is extraordinarily beautiful. The Divine Majesty Series is made possible by an anonymous underwriter in memory of Mary Wolfman Epstein and Cantor Barney Mould.

Who We Are

Performing on concert stages throughout North America, Europe, and Israel, the award-winning Zamir Chorale of Boston awakens audiences to the exotic rhythms of the Middle East to the majestic anthems of 19th-century European synagogues, from the romances of Spain to the chants of Yemen, and from contemporary American jazz to the much-loved Yiddish tunes of Jewish musical theater.

Founded in 1969 by Joshua Jacobson, one of the world’s leading authorities on Jewish choral music, the Zamir Chorale of Boston’s “music with a mission” brings the joy of Jewish music to audiences that transcend age, religious and ethnic background. Zamir sets the bar for musical excellence.
