Selmar Cerini's real name was Selmar Steifmann. Born 1860 in Wulka (Poland), died 1923 in Wroclaw (Poland again).Information provided by Robert Schlesinger
The Asile héréditaire was issued on the Elephone label under the name Lewandowski. Elephone was the export label of Lyrophon. The "Lewandowski" on the label is a mistake obviously due to the fact that Cerini also recorded Louis Lewandowski's Kol nidre version in that same recording session; Christian Zwarg suspects that for the Elephone label, they simply copied the name from the wrong line and column of the original recording sheet.

I wish to thank Richard J. Venezia for the recording (Kol Nidre).
