Litvishe niggunim - Rav Moshe Shmuel Shapiro zt"l

Rav Moshe Shmuel Shapiro זצ"ל, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivas Be'er Yaakov in Eretz Yisroel, who was niftar a few years ago, was a ba'al menagein.

Here are a few of his niggunim, for your listening pleasure.

1) שירו לו - note the old Litvish pronunciation of the cholam (cheylem).

2)  בא אל פרעה

Somewhat different is a third, אמר אביי.

They are not the jazzed up songs that one hears so often today. They have a simplicity that evokes years past. But it is nice to hear such old fashioned tunes for a change.

Kol Haloshon has a nice selection as well, video and audio.

Here is a nice video, with clips of the ראש ישיבה speaking at public events, with Rav Schach זצ"ל, and recalling a visit of the Chazon Ish.

Who says Litvaks can't sing. ;-)

זכותו תגן עלינו
