Leib Glantz sings Makhnisei rahamim
In RA Format

Leib Glantz - born 1898 Kiev, died 1964 Tel Aviv; one of the most famous cantors ever. See this link for his biography and pictures; the biography states that he sang in three operas, two modern, the third La Juive. Unfortunately, it doesn't state when and where. Glantz was probably the most individual of all cantors; his singing is unlikely to leave anybody indifferent. You hate him or you love him (his Makhnisei rahamim recording is a very good example).

I wish to thank Robert Schlesinger for the recordings and notes.
