This box set reissues the complete recordings of legendary Brussels-based Jewish cantor, Yitshak Jacques Zaludkowski (Ben Baruch), originally published on 78 rpm picture discs by Saturne in 1950. Nine discs were recorded under René Cloërec's direction, the other two under Léon Algazi's. Also included are "Yehi Rotson" and "Shabes Baym Shalesh-Shudes," two songs found on a non-picture disc record released by Le Disque Folklorique Yiddish. This singer's repertoire is diversified: synagogal-like religious songs in Hebrew, Yiddish songs, songs about religious topics in Hebrew or Yiddish and songs in Hebrew about the inception of the State of Israel. Haunting, ancient and mesmerizing.
