Sheet music

For non professional chazzanim the recordings on this site are very useful. For professionals however, sheet music is more important.

We will try to collect and publish what we have. There is a big collection in the Ets Haim library, usually referred to as the "Santo books", as most were written for the he Santo Sevicio choir, which started in 1886. This collection will be published in the future.

 Emanuel Aguilar

Sheets music written by Emanuel Aguilar in 1857, based on 70 melodies he heard from David Aaron de Sola. Recordings will follow. Mind this collections contains many "standard' melodies, in contrast to the Santo books, which contain mainly big compositions. According to the note attached to the first page (see picture) chazzan de Sola moved to London in 1818, so this collection of music is much older. 
It will be interesting to compare this sheet music to what we sing today, mainly based on the recordings made by hazzan Nunes Nabarro in the 1960's, which can be found elsewhere on this site.
