Recordings SAV Rosh Hashana
Shofar blowing on Rosh Hashana: The שברים-תרועה tone during the תקיעות דמיושב is blown as one tone, all other שברים-תרועה tones are blown with a short break. During the תקיעות דמיושב we are actually sitting. After the blowing in the kadish (before תענו) a תרועה גדולה is blown.
Before the war this was the end of the blowing, total 71 tones. 30 more tones were blown outside the synagogue for those who were interested. After the war, Haham Pereira (SRP) decided to blow these in the synagogue, after אדון עולם, so now we blow in total 101 tones.
Recording audio or  video (M. Samson), made in 1988 for a film, therefore music is heard at the end. This is the way we used to blow. Later the rabbi changed it a bit: the “glitch” after the שברים and תרועה we shorted.
Recordings SAV Kal Nidre
Recording JBS end of ne'ila and the shofar blowing (first part of recording, second part is for hoshangana rabba). 
Hatarat nedarim (source unknown; the shown text is similar to the text in sidur זכור לאברהם Livorno page 53, page 63 in the 1993 reprint onwards, but this is much shorter.)
From Rosh Hashana till after Yom Kippur and on hoshan'ana rabba, all ornaments of- an around the sepher tora are made from white cloth. The rimonim (tora finials) are filigree because of the white appearance. The yad (pontero, ponter) is made from ivory. 
The 4 big candles on the corners of the teba are lit after mincha before Kippur by the chazzanim. The thick candles in front of the heichal are lit by the remaining chazzanim, supplemented by kohanim and other members.

Traditionally, we used big shofarot.
Since in the1970's the tokea started buying shofarot in Israel, his special shape was abandoned for practical reasons.

After mincha preceding Kippur, the big cupper candlesticks in front of the hechal are replaced by thick candles on simple metal plates. These are let after mincha and stay on, until the end of Kippur. Also the four big candles on the teba corners are lit after mincha and stay on. The candles on the teba are lit by the chazzanim, the rest by the rabbinate, and nowadays, by whoever is available.
