1. Virtual Cantor
Great site with mp3's of nearly everything. This should always be the first stop. His nusach can be unique, at times, and he has great melodies that are hard to find elsewhere.
In Italian. Huge archive of Italian recordings, including Italian laining, Italian nusach, and classes. There's a lot more there than I've been able to properly categorize, especially without an Italian siddur, so the notes below are (and will probably always be) incomplete.
4. Het Levisson Instituut
This is a big collection of very musical Dutch Jewish nusach, including sheet music in many cases. It covers many services, including weekday, Shabbat, chag, and High Holidays, with multiple versions at times. This is a very extensive resource. The nusach is in large part compatible with the common Eastern European nusach, and a large number of lectures are provided on the subject as well. The sheet music uses Dutch transliteration, however, so it will look funny to English speakers!
5. Sephardic Hazzanut Project
This is a project by Faraj Samra to preserve and present Sephardic chazanut (the title probably gave that away, didn't it?). It's actively growing and receiving regular updates, so this information may soon be out of date. It contains Torah, haftarah, and Tehilim readings, and a very large chunk of the siddur (including melodies sometimes).
6. Shir Halev
Great site with lots of Chasidic recordings of melodies! Has a section for Sephardic and Chasidic melodies, too. Click on the download links to listen in your browser if the player doesn't work.
A huge and fairly comprehensive collection of German-tradition nusach recordings by a Marcel Lang. There's nusach for everything, and sometimes even several different versions. This site is superlatively good for Friday night recordings and has several unique tracks like the Purim Kiddush!
8. Shituf Piyut
In Hebrew. It's a site where users can upload their own recordings of piyutim and make their own piyut-centered pages. There's a ton of stuff on here, in various traditions (emphasis on Moroccan and Yemenite, but there's Ashkenazi as well), with a LOT of non-piyut recordings as well; it's affiliated with Invitation to Piyut, so you know it's good. However, unlike its relative, browsing for anything is an absolute nightmare, since within each occasion, they're ordered by *date*. However, there's much more than just piyutim -- there's laining and tefilah as well, but you have to dig. There's a Google-powered search engine too, which helps.
9. Torah For Me/123Torah (from Mechon Meir)
A surprisingly large collection of audio classes, including model complete seders, songs (including actually teaching the songs) and blessings, stuff like that. It's basically an open directory structure, and it's just filled with stuff. It even has correct laining for Job, Proverbs, and Psalms! I should mention that there's much more in here than I can categorize myself, so if I missed anything, let me know! There are many recordings under Songs that I don't immediately recognize, so if you're looking for something in particular, it could be here.
11. Piyut Archive
Absolutely wonderful collection of piyutim (and regular blessings and psalms too, if you look hard enough) from all over the world. It's extensive. Only caveat: the site is in Hebrew, and the English version is improving but still imperfect. This is one of my first sources for relatively rare piyutim.
By the way, there's a bug when you browse or search the archive: the search engine defaults to Temani results only for some reason. To get the full list, just click on "English" next to the search box.
12. Siddur Audio
Also a great site with quite a bit. It has most of the Haggadah, as well as melodies for a lot of things on Shabbat and weekdays (all in streaming format). My second stop.
There is a lot here! There are melodies and accompanied recordings for many things, and not so much nusach. If you aren't familiar with Chabad, you'll find exciting combinations here, like using the Hoshia et Amecha tune for the R'tzeh paragraph in the Birkat Hamazon. A fantastic resource.
Shiurim and music of Breslov chasidim. In Hebrew. Like other Chasidish sites, it also contains quite a few instrumental tracks, and the audio quality varies for older recordings. Loading times can be very slow! The Breslov chasidim use the Chasidish Nusach Sefard.
15. London Sephardi Music
A whole bunch of Sephardic recordings. If it's similar to the Liturgical Music of Shaar Hashamayim website, it's because it's made by the same person! The content is different, though, and there's a lot more detail in some of the pages, including texts of prayers and piyutim.
16. K'hal Adas Jeshurun
Very extensive and very specific recordings of a lot of things, in Netherlands and Ashkenazi traditions. Really, really cool.
17. Zemirot Database
A big collection of songs, focusing on zemirot and piyutim, with words, translation, and often multiple recordings (though some have none). It's not organized by occasion, so I could be off in my categorizations, but this should be a primary resource for zemirot. There are some Indian (Bene Israel) tunes, but they're all cut off after exactly one minute. Be careful, too, because a few of the recordings are sung without particular attention to pitch!
18. Seder Chazzanut Amsterdam
Dutch Sephardic nusach, in old recordings, for scattered parts of weekdays, Shabbat, holidays, etc. Most pages are in Dutch, but Google translates them well enough.
20. Sephardic Pizmonim Project
A fairly thorough archive of pizmonim from Syria that also explains the maqam system. It's a bit difficult to find things, however, since the Syrian nusach is so different from Ashkenaz, and Nusach Ashkenaz does not have the concept of pizmonim.
21. Congregation Toras Chaim (Dallas)
An Orthodox congregation, with plenty of great nusach recordings and audio classes. Other recordings are in the pages under Resources, including some beautifully harmonized recordings for Shabbat.
22. National Library of Israel -- Music
In Hebrew -- there's an English page but it has a lot less stuff, so don't use it! Some selections from the library, some of them very nice! They reside at "Compilations", and they span a variety of Jewish musical traditions. Unfortunately, not all of them work at the moment.
23. União Israelita Shel Guemilut Hassadim
This is a shul (the oldest shul, in fact) in Rio de Janeiro, so the site and directions are in Portuguese. The nusach is Morrocan Sephardic, which is a different musical paradigm than what you see in Ashkenazi congregations: it's VERY repetitive nusach and no melodies. Much of the recordings are beautiful CDs for listening rather than straight nusach. By way of translation, you can find recordings of Psalms, Kabbalat Shabbat (CD), the Kedusha set to a wide variety of beautifully recorded tunes (CD), Slichot (CD), the Mishna, Megilat Esther, the Haggadah (though there is no singing that I can tell, just chanting), and weekday nusach.
24. Beth El Sudbury
Trope lessons, prayers, and some songs, including Haggadah stuff. Much of it is not so traditional and more song than nusach -- songs that repeat one line over and over and involve clapping and English, that sort of thing.
25. How to Daven as a Ba'al Tefilah (Rabbi Haskel Lookstein)
A really great resource on proper nusach, with explanations on phraseology and musicality throughout the recordings. Has nusach (chanting, not many melodies) for weekdays, Shabbat, festivals, high holidays. Even has Slichot!
A site to teach the Shabbat services. There are multiple versions of many things, interesting melodies, and it's rather thorough.
27. Rabbi Robert Scheinberg's page
It's a blog, but the music links on top have a pretty nice variety of nusach and melodies. Very much in progress at the moment. The high holiday recordings are in very large files, though, so it's a bit hard to find what you want in them, but they're very good.
28. Chazzanut For All
A RIDICULOUS Mediafire archive of chazzanut. RIDICULOUS. Great cantors, old recordings, many live and of low quality but still, and it's enormous. MANY recordings of Slichot -- more than you'd think exist! Shabbat, holidays, weekdays, you got it. Seriously cool stuff. It is chazzanut, though, mostly in the Golden Age style.
29. Yeshiva Kesser Torah
A collection of videos of the instructor chanting a lot of nusach (using nusach Sfard), including Shabbat, High Holidays, and even Simchat Torah. There are many interesting tunes throughout the videos! The Nigunim section contains only samples of tracks, though.
30. Mishkan Tefila
A shul's website with a fairly inclusive collection, including Shabbat, nearly the entire weekday services, trope for everything, many, many Torah readings, and more.
31. Kol Emeth
A bunch of recordings of Shabbat and weekday services. Some are quite musical.
32. Beth El Congregation
Looks like Beth El is the First Baptist Church of Judaism: every town has two. Anyway, pretty good nusach stuff for Shabbat, including a very nice Hallel and Anim Zemirot.
34. Mechon Hadar
Ooh, really good stuff for high holy days. Check out their Ki Hineh Kachomer from Kol Nidrei! Keep an eye out for the bottom of the page where you specify how many results are displayed, because there's sometimes stuff that seems hidden.
35. Nigunei Modzitz
In Hebrew. The English language Modzitz site may be old and have RealAudio files, but the Israeli site has all the music! The site's English section is apparently under construction, but the Hebrew section is easily navigable (especially with Google Translate). There are melodies for various zemirot and blessings, as well as many, many niggunim. Some recordings are instrumental only, some are sung with accompaniment, some are just sung.
36. Recorded Liturgy - Rabbi Josh
Excellent source for Pesach, high holidays, Shabbat morning, and festivals. Big .wav files, but the nusach is really good.
37. Temple Israel of Natick
Quite a few songs and prayer melodies, including bedtime melodies and Shabbat. It looks to be in the process of reconstruction, so not all of the links have been implemented yet.
39. Northwestern University Conservative Minyan
A fairly complete resource for Shabbat prayers, including Kabbalat Shabbat, Maariv, Pesukei D'zimra, Shacharit, Musaf, and even Mincha. The down side is that you have to download the tracks and can't just play them in the browser. The singer's pitch is also unclear at times.
40. Congregation Beth David Religious School
In Box format, though the mp3's can be downloaded. The Shabbat morning recordings have quite a few songs rather than nusach. There are also some songs that have English as well.
41. Nusach HaTefillah
Nusach samples from Shabbat and weekday. The Flash controls don't work, but the files still (mostly) exist, I think.
42. Beth El West Hartford
mp3's for a lot of stuff for Shabbat. It's downloadable, which is nice, and it's a great resource.
43. Congregation Agudath Sholom -- Cantor Wollheim
Weekday nusach and high holiday recordings. The site is Flash-based and will not work with a Flash blocker. Interestingly enough, the menus at the top of the page are somewhat inconsistent, and a set of recordings for their junior congregation is difficult to find but present. That set has plenty of Shabbat, festival Amidah, and Hallel recordings as well as a large number of Torah readings, though the recordings are in alphabetical order.
44. Congregation Beth El -- Bethesda
Some complete recordings of services in SoundCloud format. Includes Kabbalat Shabbat, maariv, the Torah Service, some of Musaf, mincha (sans repetition), Havdalah, Birkat Hamazon, etc.
45. Adi's Jewish Music Page
Many recordings by a cantor, including Friday night, Shabbat musaf, Sheva Brachot, and some high holiday, and there is actual sourcing for many of the melodies!
Interesting melodies from an Iraqi tradition, for a variety of texts including Kol Nidrei, Shabbat piyutim, etc. In progress.
47. Green Burgh Hebrew Center
A set of recordings including quite a bit from the seder. The recordings are on different pages under "Worship", including under Junior Congregation.
48. West End Synagogue
The page for a Reconstructionist shul; it has a few rather nice recordings with pretty melodies! Check out her recording of Mah Ashiv, for instance.
49. Temple Emanu-El San Jose
Go to "Worship" at the top and go to "Songs & Prayers". There are a few songs and prayers (as the title indicates), read (with no melody) and sung (with instrumental accompaniment), in streaming Quicktime format. Mostly Reform Shabbat stuff. There's also a separate Pesach section with recordings.
50. Nusach Hatefillah (David Fensterheim)
In somewhat mixed Hebrew and English. Contains very nice recordings of weekday and Shabbat nusach, though you have to download them; you can't listen in the browser.
General blessings, each in its own page, so it's not easily categorized. Not all blessings have sung recordings attached, but many do, often covering more than the written text. Other pages with recordings (not hosted locally) are here, with posts marked "music".
52. Congregation Olam Tikvah
Instruction on leading various blessings and services, partly aimed at teenagers (some sung fairly slowly). There are some High Holiday tracks as well, sung at regular speed.
54. Kol Hamikra
An extensive resource for laining (whole Torah, haftarot, Megillot) as well as some nusach (uses Eastern European pronunciation). Includes chanted psalms. It's currently growing fairly quickly, too, so this ranking may be outdated! The recordings in the Tefillah section don't actually contain melodies but shiurim on the respective prayers, except the one on the Kaddish.
55. The Music of Mikveh Israel
A nice Sephardic version of Shabbat musaf as well as some piyyutim and prayers for the high holidays. The audio is streaming, and the text is shown on the page as well for the piyyutim.
56. Dorshei Tzedek
Various recordings from a Reconstructionist congregation. Note that the Reconstructionist text can vary from the original at times. Includes Torah blessings (with text) elsewhere on the site, and includes trope as well.
57. Temple Beth Sholom -- Miami Beach
A series of recordings in various places on the website. At Worship-Lifecycle - Shabbat - Shabbat Prayer Recordings, there are several recordings of the prayers being read one word at a time, but some of them do go into song eventually. By the way, there are more than 10 recordings on that page, but you have to click on the number select to show them. Many don't even have actual recordings. Under Music at TBS, though, there are a LOT of great cantorial recordings (including for Shabbat), most with talking before them.
58. Congregation Adath Jeshurun -- Elkins Park, PA
A fairly large set of recordings for a shul site, with varied things, including some nice ones with instrumental accompaniment. There's a beautiful recording of the blessing of children, for instance.
59. Music of Modzitz
A lot of nice Chasidic niggunim, many very march-like, but it's in Real Audio format, which makes it exceedingly awkward to listen to. Many of the files don't work, either.
61. Temple Emanuel (Newton, MA)
Very well-chanted recordings of the weekday maariv, Shabbat morning, and Shabbat mincha services. Includes V'hi Noam, the additions for Saturday night! There are also Pesach and High Holiday recordings under "Music".
62. Adath Israel -- Gabbai Resources
An Orthodox shul's recordings of various services, including Hoshanot! Also has a couple of High Holiday melodies and recordings of Yom Tov maariv and shacharit.
63. Beth Emeth
You don't find recordings of the gabbai calls very often, but here you go, calling the first aliyah in almost every conceivable scenario! Also has the normal Shabbat morning stuff. I found that the player doesn't work, but the links link to the mp3 directly and those are fine.
67. Temple Sholom
A shul with some recordings, including a nice high holiday selection.
68. Tufts Hillel
Shabbat recordings. They're deliberately, but agonizingly, slow; however, they've got some hard-to-find stuff.
69. High Holiday Recordings
What it says on the tin. Also has trope for high holidays and chag services, but it does not cover Kol Nidrei. Very good mp3 recordings, with directions. One of my top high holiday sources.
70. YUTorah -- Series: Laining
Readings from throughout the year. Click on Categories to see them more easily. Includes special haftarot, Kohelet, blessings before Esther, etc.
71. Chabad.info Songs
In Hebrew. It's a fairly nice collection of davening and nigunim, but do please note that this is Chabad.info, a messianic group, and not the mainstream Chabad Lubavitch. Many are very low-quality recordings, which appear to be either old or recorded in a very large party, but this only adds character. The nigunim are not particularly organized, so I can't rate them easily, but there are nigunim for Shabbat, high holidays, Pesach, you name it. Some are instrumental only (Chabad Classic, for instance). Contains the entire Torah, most haftarah, Esther, and a very good high holiday section. Note that the tables are arranged right to left then top to bottom, like this:
3 2 1
6 5 4
72. Beth Ami
Shabbat recordings, including Mincha and that less-used melody for the tune when the Torah is paraded around on Saturday morning before reading.
73. Agudas Achim
All of Shabbat including the Motzaei thereof. Worth a listen! Shacharit, the Torah Service, and Musaf are all in the same section, but they're shuffled for some reason; look at the page numbers to get a sense of order.
75. Kol Zimrah
A bunch of Shabbat recordings, both services and zemirot, sung by upbeat groups of people who harmonize beautifully. Many recordings are listed but not linked for some reason.
76. Bnai Shalom of Olney
A few things from various services, including Havdalah and weekday services, but there are a lot of broken links... The setup uses frames, which makes for very awkward browsing, but to find the recordings, click on Our Synagogue --> Hazzan Sara Geller --> Friday Night Service, and scroll around. Or try this.
78. Isaac Asoze
The site of a Sephardic cantor with a large selection of recordings, including videos of Hoshana Rabbah. Unfortunately, much of it is in Real Audio format.
79. Conrgegation Kehilat Shalom
A Reconstructionist shul's website. Some high holiday Torah readings and a very, very nice collection of Shabbat tracks, including a bunch of songs at the start.
81. Ansche Chesed -- Hazzan's Page
A bunch of nice recordings (that need to be downloaded) of Pesach tunes, Shirat Hayam, Chanukah blessings, Shabbat, and more. Some have beautiful piano accompaniment!
82. Netivot Shalom
The Shabbat morning service (using the shortened Pesukei D'zimra). Has Torah trope as well. There's also an alternate melody for the Kaddish Shalem at the end of musaf (which is shortened; Shacharit is full-length), which is cool.
83. New North London Synagogue
A few Shabbat, Pesach, and Rosh Hashanah melodies, though the site is very much in progress. Pesach files are spread over a few different pages, and currently, some of the links don't work (though most do).
84. Temple Beth El -- Ithaca
A good bunch of recordings, but it's not in order! Most is in nusach, but there are some melodies too.
85. Jewish Theological Seminary -- Music Collections
A few digitized music collections from the JTS library. It includes field recordings of laining (examples from most books of the Tanach, at least) from 1936-8 Israel, which are naturally very scratchy and whose titles are in Hebrew, some music from Cochin, India, and Jewish art music manuscripts. The interface, I should warn, is horrendous, as sadly befits a library website.
86. Chabad Kids
The kids section of the Chabad website, which has several songs for holidays and other occasions, as well as original children's songs about the Torah and other Jewish themes.
87. Beth Jacob Oakland
Tisch songs, as well as Yeshivat Reishit's beautifully harmonized high holiday tunes.
A collection of seder melodies, zemirot, and other songs, along with transcribed sheet music, with many different melodies per song. A nice treasure trove, since most sites only have one melody for each thing.
90. Temple Sinai of Hollywood
A small but varied selection of recordings, many of artistic settings, from Adon Olam and Eli Tzion to Shalom Rav and Maoz Tzur. From what I can tell, this list is also made by the E-Hazzan and contains mostly the same things as the blog.
91. Bnai Jeshurun
A few CD's of music for Shabbat, Purim, Pesach, High Holidays, and more.
92. Stephanie Shore
Lots of normal Shabbat stuff, including some melodies omitted by the previous two, but the interface is a bit awkward.
93. Liturgie Hebraïque Du Rite Sefardi Dit Portugais
In French. It has recordings of the Portuguese rite, some with choir, at Manuel d'étude. It's got quite a bit, including taamim for prose and poetry, Eicha, Geshem, L'chah Dodi, etc. There's more in the Ceremonie de la Bar Mitzwa. The first track even has a pronunciation guide for the French rite (nasal ע, for instance).
Various Chasidic recordings and niggunim. Has an extensive section on Ana B'choach and three versions of Shoshanat Yaakov.
95. Beth El Durham
A shul's website with tunes for Shabbat. Several have alternate melodies! Be sure to note at the bottom where it links to other pages within the website with melodies for Friday night home rituals.
96. Temple Aliyah
In construction, but it contains recordings of the entire Friday night service and the preliminary morning services for high holidays, as well as a few other things. The Friday night recording was apparently done in a long session with many people, so some of the tracks have more than what they say.
97. SJCC Bnai Aaron
Melodies under Religious Services at both Holidays and Shabbat. Includes a Kabbalat Shabbat that's almost all Carlebach.
98. Jewish Audio
A bunch of Chasidic niggunim as well as various classes on various subjects. The recordings are in Real Audio format, and at least for me, my browser says the plugin did not load but the files open in my external Real Audio program.
99. Congregation Beth Sholom
Beautifully harmonized melodies for Saturday morning services and niggunim for zemirot. Also has a lot of high holiday tunes.
100. Sinai Temple
A shul's website with some old-time chazzanut/choral recordings under both tabs, including one by Ganchoff and Lewandowski's Uv'nucho Yomar. Includes several High Holiday selections. The same temple also runs cybermitzvah.org, with standard Shabbat audio files for a bar- or bat-mitzvah, though many are spoken.
101. Temple Beth Elohim (Wellesley, MA)
A Reform synagogue with some very beautifully done recordings, with instrumental accompaniment. Their primary set of recordings (Congregational Music) is a bit ambiguous as to service, with chanted Avot v'Imahot and G'vurot, but then it continues with a chanted Atah Kadosh, apparently a substitute for the silent Amidah. There are some beautiful tunes there, though with a Reform flavor certainly. The B'nei Mitzvah Prayers is a set of recordings for b'nei mitzvah; it must be downloaded as a zip, but it's got a bunch of stuff (without accompaniment).
102. Beth Shalom Seattle
A nice and varied collection of recordings, including including extensive festival morning nusach!
103. SimpleToRemember -- Shabbat Zmirot
A collection of zemirot and other recordings for Shabbat at home. I think everything on it is from Aish.com, but there may be exceptions. Make sure to click "download" instead of the song title.
104. Shabbos Project Toolkit
Texts and recordings of pretty much everything one might need for one's own Shabbat celebration, including kiddush, zemirot, etc. Recipes too!
105. JConnect Seattle
A bunch of prayers and Torah portions, including Shabbat Torah service and high holiday.
106. Great Jewish Music
A site that looks stuck in the 90's (though it's not like my site is any better). It has MIDI files for some things, some .mp3 files, and some .mp3 samples, along with links to purchase the files on iTunes or Rhapsody (so it isn't actuallystuck in the 90's).
107. Yede Abraham
A site for Sephardic chazzanut. It contains many links to off-site tracks, but it hosts many as well; there's a pretty good library here! There are more recordings under From the Esnoga, but that part of the site is in Dutch and contains only snippets.
108. Digital Haggadah
A recording of the Haggadah. The difference between the nusachim and speeds is JUST pronunciation and speed; "Shir HaMaalot (Fast)" and "Shir HaMaalot (Slow)", for example, are the same melody, with different speeds. Different nusach from Virtual Cantor and Siddur Audio.
109. E-Hazzan Blog
A series of blog posts about liturgy, usually including musical examples (though these are usually chazzanut rather than synagogue nusach). Since it's a blog, things aren't organized by subject, so my rankings may be off. There are also numerous demo excerpts from commercial CD's rather than full tracks, and many of the older posts have broken file links.
110. Congregation Ohr Torah -- Shiurim and Classes
A bunch of classes, including one by the Belz School of Music for Nusach Hatefilah. The Nusach Hatefilah class covers details of the Saturday morning service, though I don't think the third session is working.
112. Cantorial Melodies by Kiki Arochas
A few Sephardic recordings by Cantor Hezkia Eliezer "Kiki" Arochas, including Kiddush, some Tehilim (Shirei Hamaalot), all of weekday Shacharit, and more.
113. Congregation Kehillath Israel
I really like going to services at this shul! The page is a bit hard to navigate, though. Shabbat recordings (for children) are under Congregational Learning. High Holiday Tunes are at the Shabbat and Prayer link (not the one that shows up in the menu), and for extra confusion, the link that does show up in the menu is Chazzan Saul Wachs's recording, which is separate. Several of the High Holiday Tunes are borrowed from other sites as well, so check those out!
114. Congregation Beth El (Berkeley)
Many blessings and songs, for Shabbat and in general. There are additional interesting melodies for many of them, with attributions! They don't follow the traditional order of the service, however, especially for Kabbalat Shabbat.
115. Free Jewish Sheet Music
This is a site that sells sheet music, but there's some available for free as well, most notably some Rosenblatt recitatives.
116. Shaarey Tikvah
Tunes for a Carlebach Shabbat (Kabbalat Shabbat and maariv), though not every single paragraph. Also contains a large set of High Holiday congregational melodies.
Includes trope, obviously! It's a bunch of recordings for bnei mitzvah, including Torah and haftarah trope as well as selections from maariv, musaf, and the Torah service. The catch: Chrome at least makes you download the recordings instead of playing them in the browser.
118. Passover Sing Along
Many songs from the Haggadah, including some less usual ones, and often many tunes -- five for Mah Nishtanah! Includes some things in English for young children, too. Has an extensive Hallel (no nusach, though), a melody for Vay'chi Bachatzi Halailah, four for Adir Hu, etc.
119. Temple Adat Elohim
A temple's website with some fairly nice bar mitzvah recordings. They're in alphabetical order, sadly, but things are easy to find. The melodies are often different from the ones heard elsewhere.
120. Fair Lawn Jewish Center
A shul's website with some Shabbat recordings for Friday night and Saturday morning. Includes an interesting V'shamru melody.
121. Ellie's Torah Trope Tutor
The gold standard in trope websites, as far as I'm concerned. There's Torah, haftarah, high holiday, Eicha, Esther, and Shalosh Regalim (Shir Hashirim, Ruth, Kohelet) trope, and with musical notation to make it even easier.
123. Kehilot Sharot
In Hebrew. Has various videos of piyutim and musical performances.
A repository of mostly Ashkenazi liturgical music (I may have quoted this description from somewhere). There's a lot of old cantorial sheet music, like Sulzer's book for the whole year, Lewandowski tunes, and a few others. Really worth seeing. The recordings are concert-style rather than synagogue-style, though.
125. Save The Music
A huge archive of Jewish recordings of various types, from chazzanut to folk songs to dance. You can see the albums a few at a time, or see the songs a few at a time with genre information, but I don't think it's easily sortable by genre. Still, this is a great place to find stuff if you know what you want in particular.
126. Machon Moreshet Ashkenaz
Most of the page is in Hebrew, but the part with music is also in English. It contains two PDFs of the German nusach for what seems to be the whole year (with a lot of etc.'s, though). Really cool and rather comprehensive.
127. Two Hours of Jewish Soul Music by Charlie Bernhaut
An insane amount of stuff in a completely unsearchable format. Mr. Bernhaut hosts a weekly radio show with two hours of music, and each episode is available, along with a list of the recordings used. There's Jewish music of all types, but quite a bit is chazzanut. The problem here is that the lists aren't organized by genre or occasion, so to me, it's completely opaque unless I go and listen to everything. Which I might just do, because this is really cool. In the meantime, this is actually a pretty good place to look for specific pieces of chazzanut provided you can suss out the spelling and use your browser's find function.
129. Shearith Israel
The first congregation in America! It's Spanish and Portuguese, so it uses different nusach. The site has mostly a few exapmles of Torah and haftarah reading, but there are a couple of melodies (Az Yashir) as well.
131. Len Fellman's Jewish Music
Contains some rather interesting items, like recordings of the Megillot (Esther, Eicha, Shir Hashirim, some of Kohelet) with trope in English.
132. Ashlag Baroch
A few songs and prayers in a very old style (notes are difficult to hear, though). The page is in Hebrew; the headings are Shabbat, second meal of Shabbat, third meal of Shabbat, Psalms, Pesach, and Yom Kippur.
133. Kol Shofar
A shul's website with some good recordings, for Shabbat and more!
134. Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El
Contains a CD of accompanied Friday night melodies, as well as other Shabbat and even a couple of High Holiday melodies without accompaniment.
Weekday services and some .wmv's (yeah, I know) from a concert.
137. Transliterated Siddur
This is a site mostly for transliterations, but some of them have a music symbol that provides recordings.
138. Sephardic Bikur Holim
Sephardic recordings of some prayers, with a focus on High Holidays, and the entire Torah recited.
139. Chatimot of Mishkan T'fillah
Interesting -- a bunch of recordings of only the chatimot, along with sheet music for same. Only includes chatimot from "Baruch atah Adonai". Includes maariv and shacharit for Shabbat, weekdays, and festivals.
140. Bet Ha'am
A shul's website with recordings for Shabbat morning (not including Musaf).
141. Chabad Hebrew School of Westboro
A set of (weekday) morning blessings, from Modeh Ani to the Torah reading, for children to learn the morning service. Includes Al Tira after Aleinu (under Amidah and End of Shacharit)
143. Rodeph Sholom
Quite a few recordings of nusach for Shabbat and weekdays. If you look at the cantor's articles, you'll find a compendium of Misinai melodies as well, like the Great Aleinu, Kol Nidrei, and such.
144. Goethe Universität -- Judaica (Universitätsbibliothek)
Goethe University's digitized Judaica collection. It isn't all music, but there is a lot of that there anyway. There are over 10000 items -- good luck! If you know what you're looking for, you can find Baer's Baal T'fillah, for example. This place is extensive.
In Hebrew. A project to preserve old Hebrew song recordings, which includes some piyutim and liturgical passages. They're organized alphabetically, though, so it's difficult to figure out liturgical coverage for particular services or holidays, but there are very, very, very many of them!
148. Temple Beth El Aptos
The whole Saturday morning service, along with explanations, though this shul doesn't do a full Pesukei D'zimrah or repetition of the Amidah (or any of Musaf) and actually begins the service with Modeh Ani and Mah Tovu.
149. Chazan Eliot Alderman
A cantor's recordings of wedding and Shabbat music with embellished nusach. Very nice!
A transliterated siddur, with some tunes too! It's not very easy to navigate, though, and the links don't seem to always have what they say they have.
151. Congregation Or Zarua
A few spirited recordings of Shabbat melodies, using quite a bit of Carlebach. Includes an interesting melody for Eliyahu Hanavi.
153. Tifereth Israel
Some Friday night recordings. On the left side, go to Resources then Passionate Davening, or try this and see if the link works. Also includes Torah and haftarah trope.
A blog with videos of chazzanut -- lots of them! They're not categorized, though, so I can't know what's here without looking through all 55 pages of it (so far).
157. Jewish Folksongs
A very informative site with links to YouTube videos of folk songs of various types, including Yiddish and Ladino.
158. bar-mitzva.com -- Tunes and Notes
This is really cool! Torah and haftarah trope, in Ashkenazi, Sephardic, and Moroccan traditions. The interface is heavy on Flash, so make sure to whitelist the site in your Flash blocker if you plan on using it. Includes blessings before and after Torah and haftarah in the three traditions as well, for many occasions (not all occasions are present).
159. Scdntoyaiwu (high holiday recordings)
Pretty much complete services for Slichot, Rosh Hashanah Shacharit and Musaf, and Yom Kippur Maariv (Kol Nidrei), Musaf, and Neilah, as .zip files. I don't know who built the page, but I have been informed that the recordings are by R. Sheftel Neuberger, Nasi of Yeshivas Ner Yisroel in Baltimore. They are the the Yeshiva's unique nusach, culled together by R. Sheftel's father, uncle, and grandfather as a mixture of the nusachot from Slabodka, Mir, and Valozhin in Europe.
160. Ari Goldwag
Recordings of Saturday morning services, with nice nusach.
161. Young Israel of Century City
It's got a bunch of shiurim, but it also has (at the bottom of the page) a set of featured High Holiday recordings.
162. Temple Beth Abraham
A recording of the entire Shabbat morning service, with lots of singing in a shortened Pesukei D'zimra (and a shortened Amidah in Musaf but a complete Amidah in shacharit). There are multiple versions of some blessings. The drawbacks are that, except for Musaf, the sound is mono in the left speaker, and the service is broken up into four long files.
163. Congregation Beth Judea
A few recordings of blessings -- with sheet music! It's not a big collection, but I hadn't heard their El Adon melody before. (By the way, the sheet music links are broken, but they're only missing the colon after the 'http' so you can still access the link.)
165. An Old Country Passover
Much of the Haggadah chanted in a very old style; this is probably not useful to someone who wants to lead a modern seder, but it's interesting nonetheless. Note that "Na'ar Hayiti" is missing in the file list.
166. Shirat Hayam
Ironically, there's no recording of Shirat Hayam on this page. But there's some Friday night and a bit of Saturday morning stuff, mostly songs and a few prayers. Streaming mp3's.
167. Tremont Street Shul
Hey, it's my shul! It's a page that lists page numbers on different siddurim, but it also has Shabbat recordings in .wav and .mp3 formats for some stuff. In particular, it has things from the Torah service, which is hard to find (though not everything).
169. Mission Minyan
Kabbalat Shabbat and some high holidays. Includes some external recordings as well.
176. Temple Etz Chayim
Some very beautiful recordings of Friday night services accompanied by guitar. Note that I couldn't get them to open by clicking, but right-clicking and hitting "Save link as..." worked.
178. Temple Emanu-El (NYC)
A recording of a seder, with piano accompaniment. There are some very pretty English songs and many English readings in addition to the standard Hebrew tunes.
179. Sing Zemirot
A zemirot project with an interesting selection. Unfortunately, it's the kind of thing that Chrome makes you download rather than opening in the browser.
180. Temple Isaiah
A set of recordings of Shabbat blessings and songs. In .wma and Real Audio formats. Some of it is spoken rather than chanted. The site is sort of difficult to navigate; another page with very nice accompanied recordings is here.
181. Shir Tikvah
A shul's website with much of Shabbat shacharit.
Beautiful choral recordings (and sheet music) of a Slichot service by a British choir. There are also recordings of Sefirah services.
183. Hot Shabbat (and Tot Shabbat)
An extensive collection of music, though much of it consists of demo samples and broken links rather than full tracks. Much of it is more appropriate for perfomance than shul. The sister site Tot Shabbat has music for children, but unfortunately is it written in Comic Sans. The vast majority of the files are incomplete, Real Audio, or broken, so there's not much point to going through it, but there are a few things in either site worth checking out.
A sizeable collection of Sephardic liturgical songs, mostly arranged for four-part choir. I don't know what language the page is in, though.
185. Synagogenchor Basel
188. Adat Shalom Synagogue
Some spoken recordings and aliyah blessings, as well as the entire weekday mincah and maariv services. Includes two different nusachim for maariv.
190. Rabbi Jon's Website and Blog
A few Shabbat melodies, but the links don't work right now. There's also a page of seder melodies, and those are all good, even if the singing is a bit rough around the edges. "Friday Night Jam" has sheet music for Ana B'choach and Tzadik Katamar.
193. Zimratya Cantors Choir
In Hebrew. There are examples from the choir's repertoire, neatly separated by service, but there are recordings available (.wma) only for few of the pieces.
194. Or Chadash Kabbalat Shabbat
A very nice set of recordings for Kabbalat Shabbat, several with multiple different tunes. Sadly, Or Chadash's home page appears to have been hacked, and this is all that's left of it. Still, it's a great resource.
195. Rock N' Roll Rabbi
Rabbi David Paskin's site; it includes a rock Kabbalat Shabbat and maariv under "Unplug"!
197. Kesher Israel
A handful of recordings with basic Torah/haftarah trope, a couple of songs, and a few blessings.
200. Congregation Shearith Israel -- Dallas
A cantor's professional recordings, taken from his CD's. Very beautiful settings. Includes Kol Nidrei, Sim Shalom, L'dor Vador, Mah L'cha Hayam, Hodu, Od Yishama.
204. Kol Ami
Some beautiful professionally recorded music based on liturgy. I'm not sure it's useful in leading a service, but it's certainly very, very nice. Includes melodies for R'tzeh and Modim in the Amidah, a folk tune for V'shamru, Hashkiveinu, Ps. 96, etc.
Trope. Kind of obvious from the name, huh? It's Torah and haftarah, the standard Ashkenazi. It's nice and interactive, using a Flash interface.
207. Adath Israel Poale Zedek
A few beautiful melodies, most original, with accompaniment (including piano, choral, etc.). Includes L'chah Dodi, Etz Chayim, B'rosh Hashanah, Hu Eloheinu, M'chalkel Chayim (for High Holidays), Yismach Moshe, Ribono Shel Olam (from taking out the Torah).
209. Cantor Frank
A recording of the basic weekday maariv service.
210. Bereans Online
This is a Christian site, but it contains a few recordings: Oseh Shalom, Eshet Chayil, and the first paragraph of the Birkat Hamazon.
211. Stephen Wise Free Synagogue -- Prayers and Songs for the Sabbath
A very cool vinyl recording of Shabbat, and while there's a lot of English to wade through, it's really, really pretty when they do finally sing in Hebrew.
Candlelighting Service contains the blessing for candles; Call to Prayer contains Barchu; Psalm 23 is all English (and sadly cuts off); The Faith of Israel contains the Shema (and also sadly cuts off); Kiddush contains the kiddush.
212. Free Siddur Project
A few downloadable .mp3's; includes three different versions of Shalom Aleichem, as well as sheet music for some Haggadah songs (and .mp3's generated by the music software, not sung)
213. Hassidic Melodies
MIDIs (yes!) of niggunim. No words, naturally -- they're niggunim! Also MIDIs. There are Chabad niggunim, other Chasidic niggunim, and the author's own.
214. Kol Nefesh Masorti
A few High Holiday tunes, including the aliyah blessings in High Holiday trope! Also includes a verse-by-verse reading of chapter 9 of Esther.
215. Chazanim of Alsace-Lorraine
In French. There's a bunch of information about cantors, some with RealAudio clips that I can't get to work. At the bottom, though, is sheet music for the French trope, which is cool.
217. RH Musaf
A file at an mp3 hosting site. It looks like selections from Rosh Hashanah Musaf, with talking in Hebrew. It contains Hineni, Kaddish, El Emunah, Melech Elyon (first two stanzas, last few), and Un'taneh Tokef and the following paragraph.
220. Bnai Torah (Longmeadow, MA)
A small collection of melodies, including Yom Kippur, but they mostly link to other places (including YouTube videos).
222. Nehar Shalom
A handful of beautiful songs; I'm not sure they stand on their own without the accompaniment, but there is one (instrumental) Chasidish L'chah Dodi and P'tach Lanu Shaar from Neilah.
226. Congregation Beth El -- Bethesda
Contains Avot v'Imahot from High Holidays and Mah Tovu, as well as an English song. Also has a link to a YouTube video of the Debbie Friedman Havdalah.
227. Heska Amuna Synagogue
A handful of recordings from Shabbat shacharit and Musaf. Includes Kedusha for both services.
228. Ohr Kodesh
A handful of recordings from Shabbat shacharit and Musaf.
230. Az Yashir Mosheh
A bentscher, but one bit of it contains sheet music for some niggunim.
231. Baal Tefillah Tunes
A blog that never really got off the ground, but its one post does have a few links to Youtube videos of melodies that can be used for El Adon.
232. Kol Halev
A shul's website with a couple of High Holiday recordings, including some kids' songs.
233. Emanu-El -- Spokane
A shul's website with a couple of High Holiday recordings (Zochreinu, Melech Al Kol Haaretz).
235. Cardiff Synagogue Choir
Some recordings (five songs) of Cardiff Synagogue's choir, with instrumental accompaniment. Includes Shir Hamaalot sung to the tune of Scarborough Fair, which is kinda cool.
236. Temple Sinai Worcester
A shul's website with a couple of Shabbat recordings, including Chatzi Kaddish, first two blessings of the Amidah, and Torah and haftarah blessings. The text for the blessings is included as well.
237. Anim Zmirot Choir -- Adon Olam
31 different MIDIs of Adon Olam. The page hasn't been updated since 2001 and it really looks it, but if you can get your computer to play them, hey, why not?
238. A Taste of Shabbat
A small set of Friday night recordings in the style of chazzanut done beautifully with piano accompaniment. Includes a wonderful Kiddush.
243. Oori Shalev
In the 2002 CD Nigun Atik, there is a piece of jazz based on the hakafot of Simchat Torah. It is pretty though not specifically synagogue nusach, but it's also, sadly, the only recording of the hakafot I've yet come across.
244. Kurdish Jewry
In Hebrew. Worse, in Flash, so Google Translate doesn't work on it. There are some recordings under "folklore", but they're in .wma and Real Audio formats, and they don't seem to be liturgical.
If you look around, there are recordings of prayers (in RealAudio format -- why was this ever popular?). However, the site organization is perhaps not the strongest... Towards the bottom you'll see some links. It includes Cantor Pinchas Rabinowitz chanting Shabbat melodies, and which is pretty great.
The site was apparently hacked recently; they had archives up in some format but now it appears to be a parked domain.
247. Kol Nidrei Traditions
Different traditions' recordings of Kol Nidrei, in Real Audio format. Or so it says. I couldn't get them to work.
251. Congregation Shaarei Shalom
Completely Flash-based -- the whole thing is Flash. Also, there are no recordings on it yet as of when I last checked -- hopefully there will be nice ones soon!
