Musaph for Rosh Hashana

With tallit.

All are standing during Kaddish.
During Rosh Hashana, avelim (mourners) do not say kadish.

During Muspah, two men stand next to the chazzan, called סמוכים (semuchim). The coheen or the oldest samuch stands to the right of the chazzan, the other samuch stands to his left.

Shofar is not blown on Shabbat, but היום הרת עולם is recited (not sung) on Shabbat.
During Musaph the שברים-תרועה tone is blown as two separate tones, with a short break in between.
During Musaph, the Shofar is left on the left side of the Teba. The Tokea remains on the Teba during Musaph. For the blowing he goes from the bench to the left corner.

Greyed texts are skipped on Shabbat.

Recordings: NN tape 26 till minute 25:50. As the recording starts half way “Zichronot” it seems that tape 25b is missing. AAV (see his annotations, page 21) SRP, SB & JBS complemented this. Still, some parts were taken from other tapes.
See
"Lach" vs "Lecha".

No Shofar blowing but היום הרת עולם is read.

At the end of their tefilla, the semuchim step back 3 steps as usual, and stay there, thus standing behind the Chazzan

עמידה בלחש

Just before the kedusha the semuchim step forewords, thus standing next to the chazzan

Before WW2, if not on Shabbat, 30 extra tones were blown after Musaph outside the Snoge for those who were interested. After the war, haham Pereira (SRP) deiced to blow them inside the Snoge for all.

3* ת"שרת
3*ת"שת
3* ת"רת

(*) There is no blowing on Shabbat.
(**) taken from Yom Tob, the end for RH is different
(***)
SB uses the melody of Musaph Kippur. AAV writes explicitly that this is incorrect, see  notes AAV page 21.
(****) There is no recording of this reciting. The recording is based on "logic" and the end part of 
מלכויות, which ends in the "normal melody"
Some recordings by Haham S Rodrigues Pereira (SRP) can be found on CD3-TR5 minute 8’49

 

[1] NN brings Duchan on the recording (tape 25 minute 16’34) but this is incorrect, see also notes AAV page 21

[2] During Rosh Hashana, avelim (mourners) do not say kadish.
