Mordechai Gebirtig is the acknowledged poet-composer of Polish Jewry. Among the music treasures of every nation can be found melodies which during the lifetime of their composer were considered to be folk songs. While exemplifying the soul of the composer, they may also mirror the feelings and travails on an entire people. Such songs as: Reyzele • Hulyet Kinderlekh • Kinder Yorn • Moyshele Mayn Fraynd • S'brent and others in this book capture the spirit and pathos of Jewish life in pre-war Poland. Includes 54 selections with melody line, chords, complete verse transliteration and capsule translations.
