On this companion to their popular PBS special, the Cantors present an hour-long program of Jewish music, from liturgical material to Yiddish folksongs and Sephardic melodies. Backed by a 40-piece orchestra and 16-voice choir, the Cantors sing an evening of Jewish cantorial and secular music in a concert taped before a live audience in Amsterdam's hallowed Portuguese Synagogue. In solos, duos, and trios, Naftali Hershtik, Chief Cantor of the Great Synagogue, Jerusalem; Benzion Miller, Cantor of the Young Israel Beth-El of Borough Park, Brooklyn; and Alberto Mizrahi of Chicago, Cantor of the Anshe Emet Synagogue, present a stirring portrait of a people in song.
