Ede Halász

Ede Halász - a rarity, and a true oddity. Mr. Halász is missing even from the wonderful Hungarian stage artists lexicon http://mek.oszk.hu/02100/02139/html/index.html. According to the record label, he was a member of the Royal Opera Theatre, Budapest. What he sings is given as "Messiás-dal" - Messiah song; and turns out to be "The holy city" by Stephen Adams, in Hungarian. The reverse is... Kol nidre! A multi-religious record... by A. B. C. Grand Record, which is not a common company either.

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