The Leib Glantz Project Team announces that the website of the LEIB GLANTZ PROJECT is now up and running on the Florida Atlantic University website.
This following last year’s publication of the 500-page book THE LEIB GLANTZ PROJECT that included three audio compact disks.
You can gain access to this website by logging on to:
The website is defined as “Sound ‘n Scores” – a project of the Recorded Sound Archives at Florida Atlantic University Libraries in Boca Raton. It is a unique online approach to music studies, which combines the experience of hearing recorded sound tracks while viewing corresponding sheet music.
The website contains 43 Leib Glantz compositions, organized into seven content areas in the order they are performed in Jewish prayer services.
Displayed pages of over 100 scores of new arrangements composed by several world famous musicians, many by Raymond Goldstein in collaboration with Cantor Naftali Herstik. The arrangements are presented in various keys for the convenience of performers with different vocal ranges.
The user may click on the sheet music image to select a specific composition.
The first page to appear is an introduction explaining the composition, followed by the musical score.
Audio tracks are shown in the player on the upper right side of the page.
Track 1 is an original recording of the composition by Cantor Leib Glantz.
Track 2 is an audio of the new arrangement as produced by Finale software.
Translations and transliterations are available by clicking on the book icon beneath the player.
The menu at the top of the page can be used to navigate, zoom and print. The user may print any of the new arrangement musical scores free of charge.
In addition, the site contains a biography of Cantor Leib Glantz, photos, and access to all Cantor Glantz’s historical recordings.
We would like to thank all the donors that made this project a monumental success and to the very dedicated staff at FAU: Dr. Maxine Schackman, Yom Chouloute, Alethea Perez and Ben Roth.
