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 It's actively growing and receiving regular updates, so this information may soon be out of date.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. Piyut Archive
In Hebrew (the English version has the same stuff, but not everything has been translated). Absolutely wonderful collection of piyutim (and regular blessings and psalms too, if you look hard enough) from all over the world. It's extensive and constantly updated. Unfortunately, it seems to be down quite a bit of the time lately -- just try again later if this is the case.
9. 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.
10. 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. There are also many videos of classes which include songs and nusach at the main site.
12. Hazzan Rob Menes
A cantor's website with a nice full section of recordings. Most of them are under Ritual Resources, especially under Services, but a few are under Music instead, including motif samples from High Holidays and scanned wedding music. Under Ritual Resources -> Torah -> Special, you can also find the Megilot, including Kohelet.
13. Siddur Audio
Also a great site with quite a bit, from the Conservative tradition. 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.
16. 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.
17. Beit Hashofar
A messianic congregation's collection of recorded liturgy. It's a pretty good collection! It actually includes Al Hanisim for Purim in the Birkat Hamazon, as well as stuff for Shabbat, weddings, Pesach, and much more.
18. Torah Media Atlanta
A site with audio of shiurim -- and a whole lot of nusach!
Rabbi Menashe Goldberger: Under Jewish Prayer, you can find pretty much complete weekday shacharit, shabbat Kabbalat Shabbat/maariv/shacharit/musaf/minchah, and festival maariv/shacharit/Hallel/musaf. There's Shabbat Rosh Chodesh musaf AND weekday Rosh Chodesh musaf. The Birkat Achrona tracks are only spoken. Some of the services here have unlabeled tracks, but it's easy to find stuff anyway. There are also Haggadah songs and Chanukah blessings.
Rabbi Moshe Hiller: Complete Esther and haftarah blessings.
Rabbi Jeremy Wieder: Leining for most of the year, including the entire Torah, Ruth, Esther, and Eichah.
Zohar Killian: Some recordings of the Camp Kesher song, V'zot Habrachah, and Chanukah blessings.
19. K'hal Adas Jeshurun
Very extensive and very specific recordings of a lot of things, in Netherlands and Ashkenazi traditions. Really, really cool.
20. Sfatai R'nanot
In Hebrew. This is an institute for the preservation of the traditions of Libyan Jews, and there are TONS of recordings WITH text! Oh, and they're all neatly organized from the side menu.
21. Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies
A bunch of really good instructional recordings for various services, including Shabbat minchah and the wedding Birkat Hamazon, as well as trope for Torah, haftarah, High Holidays, and Purim, Slichot, Shabbat maariv, shacharit, and P'sukei D'zimrah, the Kol Nidrei paragraph, Rosh Chodesh musaf, and festival kiddush. It's easy to miss the link at the bottom that says "Older Entries" -- there you'll find two versions of Hallel, more P'sukei D'zimrah, and weekday minchah.
22. 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!
23. Darkei Avoteinu Min Hamaarev
In Hebrew. A site with Moroccan videos and such. Most are on YouTube, but it's fairly extensive. There are bakashot, Shabbat piyutim, etc.
24. Torat Adonai T'mimah
A very thorough resource of beautiful Moroccan nusach recordings, including Tehilim, Esther, a lot of High Holiday and Slichot, complete Shabbat services, the Haggadah, Ruth, Azharot, Kohelet, Eichah (check the bar right above the navigation sidebar), and much of Tish'ah B'av (some kinot are missing). It's absolutely great, except that things are completely unlabeled!
25. 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.
27. 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.
28. 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.
29. 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.
30. Paul Kowarsky
A cantor's website with some excellent instructional recordings as well as plenty of concert and record tracks of chazanut and other music.
31. 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 repetitive nusach with few 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.
In French. They sell CD's, but they also have videos and recordings, neatly categorized, including recordings and videos mostly from the Syrian and Tunisian traditions, often with the text as well. Recordings and videos range from traditional to accompanied and produced.
33. 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.
35. Shaar Binyamin
In Hebrew -- the versions of the page in Spanish and in English are still under construction and do not have all of the features of the Hebrew. This site contains extensive recordings and teachings of the Damascus Sephardic tradition, and there are actually quite a few of them. However, the interface is diffcult to use.
36. 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.
37. 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.
38. Beth El (Sudbury, MA)
A Reform synagogue with trope lessons, prayers, and some songs, including Haggadah stuff. Much of it is more song than nusach with simple songs that may even involve clapping and English.
39. Beth El Congregation (Pittsburgh, PA)
A Conservative synagogue with pretty good nusach stuff for Shabbat, including a very nice Hallel and Anim Zemirot. Some of the more generally named files, like Kabbalat Shabbat – Maariv and Birkot Hashachar, are actually complete services.
40. 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.
41. Mechon Hadar (New York)
An educational egalitarian institution that focuses on community building, and this used to include audio resources for leading services. There were recordings for weekdays, Shabbat, high holidays (including a great Ki Hineh Kachomer), etc., and they're still available under Archive. Now... it's an ambitious experience: a categorized collection of submitted recordings for the various parts of the various services. It's growing quickly and is already an extremely helpful resource. You can even search for melodies by tempo, time signature, or mode!
42. 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.
43. Temple Israel (Sharon, MA)
Quite an extensive set of recordings! Most are congregational melodies, but there's stuff here for Shabbat, weekdays, and high holidays, as well as haggadah tunes.
44. Kol Emeth
A bunch of recordings of Shabbat and weekday services. Some are quite musical.
46. Rebbi Hai Taieb Lo Met (Paris)
In French. A Tunisian synagogue in Paris, with quite a few recordings! I'm not sure why, but under Hazanoute, there are several recordings of the Kaddish and even more of the Kedushah, and they include Shabbat evening and morning. There are also a number of miscellaneous recordings, including piyutim, Sheva Brachot, havdalah, Shabbat morning, Brit Milah tunes, etc. Under Haguimes (Fêtes), aside from Torah and haftarah readings, there's Esther, the Haggadah in several recordings (including in Judeo-Arabic), Ruth, Eichah, and Slichot. Under Autres passages, there's Shir Hashirim, more Haggadah recordings, and a few other things like haftarah blessings and the Shema.
47. Ahaba Ve Ahva
An Egyptian synagogue in New York. There are many recordings and videos here. Many. There are several years' worth of Seder Tawhid, an Egyptian Jewish celebration on Rosh Chodesh Nisan. Three years of Slichot plus selections from a fourth. Several High Holiday tunes. Several kinot. Havdalah in a whole bunch of different maqamat. Torah and haftarah trope according to the Egyptian minhag. All of Esther. Under R' Yosef Hamaoui Media there are even more recordings, including all of Psalms and a wedding service.
48. 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.
49. Recorded Liturgy - Rabbi Josh
Excellent source for Pesach, high holidays, Shabbat morning, and festivals. Big .wav files, but the nusach is really good.
50. 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.
51. Hazzan Jesse Holzer
A cantor's website with some recordings, including some beautiful lullabies. There are links to YouTube videos under Shabbat in the Round and some recordings under Shaharit Live, but go under Skills and there are tons of files! Many songs as well as simple nusach.
53. Ohel Moshê - Congregação Mekor Haim (São Paulo, SP)
In Portuguese. This was actually my father's synagogue when he was a child, catering to Egyptian Jews and later Syrian Jews, according to my father. It has extensive (nearly complete) recordings for weekdays and Shabbat, with the text and Portuguese translation, and the highlighting of the text follows along with the recordings. This includes shacharit/minchah/arvit for weekdays and Kabbalat Shabbat/arvit/kiddush/shacharit/musaf/minchah for Shabbat. Some of the recordings are from the Sephardic Hazzanut Project. This is a wonderful project of chazanut. In addition there is chanting for complete Tehilim as well.
54. Beth El Temple (West Hartford, CT)
A Conservative synagogue with mp3's for a lot of stuff for Shabbat (and weekday maariv too). It's downloadable, which is nice, and it's a great resource.
55. Germantown Jewish Center (Philadelphia, PA)
A synagogue website with an extensive set of nusach recordings. There's a complete Kabbalat Shabbat with multiple melodies per text, a complete Shabbat maariv with multiple melodies per text as well, a complete Shabbat shacharit (from Nishmat), Hallel, Shabbat Torah service, Shabbat musaf, weekday shacharit (up to kedusha), and weekday maariv. There's also trope for haftarah, Torah, High Holiday, and Esther.
56. Temple Emanuel (Newton, MA)
Very well-chanted recordings of the weekday maariv and shacharit, 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". Temple Emanuel used to have an old site with Shabbat morning recordings as well. Those recordings are still available there, though the rest of the site no longer exists.
57. 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.
58. 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.
59. Nusach HaTefillah
Nusach samples from Shabbat and weekday. The Flash controls don't work, but the files still (mostly) exist, I think.
60. 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.
61. 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.
62. 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!
63. Chizuk Amuno Congregation
A nice and rather extensive synagogue resource, including Haggadah nusach, a big set of Youtube videos, other Shabbat sound files, trope, and bentsching.
64. Horovitz Tunes
A site dedicated to the memory of Ronny Horvitz and his melodies from Frankfurt. Contains taamim for Torah and haftarah, some Esther,
Interesting melodies from an Iraqi tradition, for a variety of texts including Kol Nidrei, Shabbat piyutim, etc. In progress.
66. Greenburgh 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.
67. 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.
68. Temple Emanu-El (San Jose, CA)
A Reform synagogue. 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.
NOTE: They have revamped this site and removed the old songs and prayers! It might be put back up at some point, but it is not there now!
69. 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".
71. Shlomo Carlebach Music (Sojourn Records)
There are several Carlebach CD's available for purchase, but you can listen to the individual tracks on the site. These are great melodies, but as is usually Reb Carlebach's style, the words are usually just a line or two from the liturgy.
72. Jewish Community of Japan
The Jewish Community of Japan caters mostly to American expats -- the website and recordings are all in English, and the rabbi is American -- but it's there and they have a website! Most of the links here are YouTube, but if you go to Services -> Sing With Us and choose the submenu options, you'll find a complete Shabbat maariv (no Kabbalat Shabbat), a few from Shabbat morning, and even some Shabbat mincha.
73. 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.
75. 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.
76. The Music of Mikveh Israel (Philadelphia)
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.
77. Congregation Etz Chayim (Palo Alto, CA)
A Reform and Conservative synagogue with an extensive audio section. Includes nearly all of the Shabbat morning service excluding musaf, including the Etz Chayim Hi for Hagbahah, sung after the Torah is raised. There's a Hallel and havdalah as well. The Friday Evening section is not as extensive, but most of the tracks are from a CD with beautiful guitar and violin accompaniment. The High Holiday section has some stuff too, including a kiddush for Rosh Hashanah.
78. 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.
79. Círculo Israelita de Santiago
In Spanish. Includes a very nice collection of Shabbat table tunes, including Bendigamos, kiddush, and several zemirot. Some of the recordings have harmony and guitar. There are also accompanied Shabbat recordings from services including minchah.
80. 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.
81. DC Minyan
An egalitarian minyan. There are a good number of Shabbat files and high holiday recordings.
82. 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.
In French. It's in Flash, so wait for it to load; you can listen to the entire Torah and haftarah chanted. If the interface is a bit wonky, don't worry, "telecharger" means "download". On the right side are recordings of other things, like Esther, Tehilim (including an instructional pdf on Taamei Emet, in French), Shir Hashirim, a Haggadah full of ululation (the Haggadah stops about halfway and then the songs start, including an Arabic Chad Gadya), some Slichot, and taamei hamikra.
84. 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.
85. 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.
88. 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.
89. Jacksonville Jewish Center (Jacksonville, FL)
A synagogue's site with a whole bunch of files. Unfortunately, they're .wma's, so it takes some hacking to get them to play on my Mac! Highlights include a great Kabbalat Shabbat service, a fairly complete Shabbat morning service from Shochen Ad, weekday afternoon (weekday evening is broken), and trope for many things.
91. Temple Sholom
A shul with some recordings, including a nice high holiday selection.
92. Bnai Shalom of Olney
A Conservative synagogue. There are a few things from various Shabbat services, as well as Havdalah and weekday maariv.
93. Tufts Hillel
Shabbat recordings. They're deliberately, but agonizingly, slow; however, they've got some hard-to-find stuff.
94. 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.
95. Temple Beth Haverim (Agoura Hills, CA)
A Conservative synagogue that sadly no longer exists, but there are still some audio files up, with much of Shabbat (excluding Pesukei D'zimrah).
NOTE: Sorry. The site is no longer there. Gone. But the Wayback Machine has stored it, along with the files on it, here!
96. YUTorah -- Series: Laining
Readings from throughout the year. Click on Categories to see them more easily. Includes special haftarot, Kohelet, blessings before Esther, etc.
97. 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
98. Congregation Sinai (San Jose)
A synagogue with recordings for a quite complete Shabbat morning service, several tunes for High Holidays including a complete Birkot Hashachar and P'sukei D'zimrah, and Sheva Brachot.
100. 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.
101. Beit Kneset Yosef Chayim (Ramot Gilead)
In Hebrew. An Israeli synagogue with a bunch of recordings (Ashkenazi melodies, including Carlebach). These include Shabbat evening and morning, birkat hachodesh, Geshem, several selections from Shalosh Regalim and High Holidays, and even a kinah from Tish'ah B'av.
103. 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.
104. Orah Saddiqim (Albany, NY)
A Karaite congregation with quite a few audio files of prayers and songs from the Egyptian Karaite tradition, including Shabbat, havdalah, kiddush, slichot, Esther, etc.
105. 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.
107. 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.
108. 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.
109. 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!
110. 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.
In Hebrew. This is a big Judaism site that also has a bunch of recordings. Many are actually samples from Harav Levi Sudri, in the Moroccan tradition, but there are some weekday shacharit recordings as well in both Sephardic and Ashkenazic nusach. There's some sheet music as well.
112. Temple Beth Zion-Beth Israel (Philadelphia, PA)
A Conservative synagogue with audio for several blessings, including Birkat Hamazon, kiddush for Shabbat evening and morning, chag, and High Holidays, havdalah, aliyah blessings, and Chanukah candlelighting.
113. Kraines Family Sings
A rabbi and his family have put up three wonderful albums of Shabbat table songs, Sheva Brachot table songs, and year-round songs.
114. B'nai Aviv (Weston, FL)
A synagogue's site with a bunch of audio files primarily for students of their religious school. In particular, the recordings for 4th and 5th graders are from a student collection called Hineni; I don't know exactly what is in them but they include liturgy like the Avot from the Shabbat morning amidah. Otherwise, there are recordings from Shabbat and weekdays, as well as a Birkat Hamazon with some less common tunes.
115. Temple Buffault (Paris)
In French. A Spanish and Portuguese synagogue in Paris. It takes a very long time to load, unfortunately -- the files are large -- but they're there. There's Friday night, Saturday morning, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Shabbat Chatan, and the haftarah for Simchat Torah. They're accompanied by organ and feature a children's chorus.
116. 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).
117. Temoni Original
In Hebrew. A website about Yemenite traditions. There are videos about how to read Torah and haftarah in the Yemenite way, for example, but the bulk of the recordings are here, organized by date. There you'll find, among other things, a Yemenite Birkat Hamazon.
Various Chasidic recordings and niggunim. Has an extensive section on Ana B'choach and three versions of Shoshanat Yaakov.
119. 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.
120. Temple Israel (Duluth, MN)
A Reform/Reconstructionist synagogue (it's affiliated with both) with a long list of audio files, mostly for Shabbat but also a bit for High Holidays. They're in .wma format, though.
121. 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.
122. 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.
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, but the audio controls are very fussy.
124. Beth Jacob Oakland
Tisch songs, as well as Yeshivat Reishit's beautifully harmonized high holiday tunes.
125. Chivte Israel
In French. A Sephardic (Tunisian and Moroccan) synagogue in Paris that includes, among other things, a course on chazanut and piyutim, with a website containing quite a few recordings in Tunisian, Egyptian, and Yerushalmi traditions. There are a lot of bakashot, some Haggadah recordings, and a few other items.
126. 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.
127. Bnai Jeshurun
A few CD's of music for Shabbat, Purim, Pesach, High Holidays, and more.
128. Cantor Stephanie Shore
Lots of normal Shabbat morning stuff, including some melodies omitted by the previous two, but the interface is a bit awkward.
129. 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).
130. Temple Aliyah (Needham, MA)
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.
131. 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.
132. SJCC Bnai Aaron
Melodies under Religious Services at both Holidays and Shabbat. Includes a Kabbalat Shabbat that's almost all Carlebach.
133. Camp Ramah Jukebox
Recordings, mostly a cappella, from Camp Ramah in California. These are really cool. There are Shabbat songs, general songs, havdalah, etc. There are 6 CDs in total that you can listen to right on the site.
134. 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.
135. Congregation Beth Sholom
Beautifully harmonized melodies for Saturday morning services and niggunim for zemirot. Also has a lot of high holiday tunes.
136. 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.
137. Documenting Maine Jewry
Several cantorial recordings by cantors from Maine. Includes some classical chazanut from the 40's and 60's as well as more modern cantorial recordings.
138. Beth Shalom Seattle
A nice and varied collection of recordings, including including extensive festival morning nusach!
139. 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).
140. Beth Jacob (Beverly Hills)
Fairly complete weekday recordings, including a Chasidic minchah, which even includes Al Hanisim for Chanukah and Purim, and additions for the Ten Days of Repentance. There's also a good collection of High Holiday recordings and videos with text.
141. Terre d'Israel
In French. A website with information about observances of Francophone Jews; it includes a few recordings and videos under their respective holidays and under Radio Tv.
142. 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.
A site to collect liturgical tunes -- a worthy goal, if I may say so myself! Each of the pages on the right has some recordings, but our communities has a complete Shabbat morning service with good nusach and tunes.
145. Kehillat Darchei Noam (Modiin, Israel)
A partnership Orthodox synagogue in Israel with a few audio files, including Hallel, P'sukei D'zimrah for Shabbat, the Torah service, and Ruth, Esther, Kohelet, and Shir Hashirim.
146. Kol Rina (South Orange, NJ)
A minyan's website with a whole bunch of melodies on Google Drive. There are Friday night melodies, a complete Shabbat musaf service, and scanned pages of musaf from Zamru Lo: The Next Generation. There are also several High Holiday recordings.
147. 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!
148. JConnect Seattle
A bunch of prayers and Torah portions, including Shabbat Torah service and high holiday. NOTE: the link seems to be broken at the moment.
149. 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).
150. Massorti Francophone
In French. You have to dig a bit, but there's some interesting stuff! Much of it is recordings from other places, like Shira Hadasha, but there are original recordings as well. Several recordings of the Shema under Rite quotidien, Friday night and Saturday day kiddush (with an interesting non-Lewandowski melody for Friday night) under Rites domestiques, several versions of several parts of Kabbalat Shabbat, including a whole lot of L'chah Dodi tunes, 10 versions of Tzur Mishelo under Chants du Shabbat; under Shabbat matin, haftarah blessings, kedusha, Ps. 150, and Shirat Hayam; and a whole bunch of High Holiday and Slichot recordings (including a whole Slichot service).
152. 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.
153. 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.
154. 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.
155. 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.
156. 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.
159. Congregation Beth El (Berkeley, CA)
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.
160. 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!
161. 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.
162. 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.
163. Temple Israel Center (White Plains, NY)
A Conservative synagogue with some varied Shabbat recordings. There's a complete Kabbalat Shabbat, some Shabbat morning tracks including two melodies for Ps. 136 and a Moroccan El Adon, an Algerian melody for Yayin Tov (bakashah and piyut for Shavuot and Simchat Torah), and seder melodies as well. This link contains all the melodies; the other links on the sidebar each contains a subset.
165. Sephardic Bikur Holim
Sephardic recordings of some prayers, with a focus on High Holidays, and the entire Torah recited.
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.
168. Fair Lawn Jewish Center
A shul's website with some Shabbat recordings for Friday night and Saturday morning. Includes an interesting V'shamru melody.
169. 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.
170. 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.
171. 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.
172. Music from the Spanish-Portuguese Congregation of New York City
It's a bunch of files on a server, but there's a lot here! All of Ruth, a complete Shabbat shacharit, including t'amim, a bunch of Shabbat morning blessings and piyutim under For Alex including the Torah service, Ein Keloheinu, Aleinu, etc., the nisim b'chol yom under Individual Blessings, more various Shabbat morning recordings under Junior Congregation Shabbat, (most of) Esther, Ein Keloheinu and the shofar for Rosh Hashanah, and some Torah readings and t'amim.
173. Sylvain's Web Page
This is a personal website straight from the 90's with RealAudio of actually a big collection of Sephardic music. It was hosted on GeoCities, but it has been saved by ReoCities, and as far as I can tell, all the subpages (except All Occasions) and .ra files work, but it might take some doing to get them to actually play -- for me, RealPlayer wasn't doing it, but MPlayer was -- and the sound quality is extremely low. There are a few MIDIs as well.
175. Kehilot Sharot
In Hebrew. Has various videos of piyutim and musical performances.
In French. A very interesting site about Tunisian Jewry that occasionally has some old recordings, like at the Pesach page from 2014. Unfortunately, finding recordings on the site is exceptionally difficult, but there are some! Note that they recently started using a new layout, but the older pages are still in the old layout; if a link takes you to a page straight out of the 90's, that's OK!
A personal blog with YouTube videos of divrei Torah, haftarot, and some singing, which as of this writing includes the Ashkenazic Shir Hamaalot (Ps. 126) and Eshet Chayil, Moroccan havdalah and Shir Hashirim.
178. The Karaite Jews of America
This is the website of the Karaite Jews of America, which is a group of Jews that follows a very different tradition from Rabbinical Jews. This particular Karaite community uses an Egyptian nusach. There are some YouTube videos at the site, as well as two recordings that appear to be complete Saturday morning services. The plugin was giving me difficulty, but you can find the link by looking at the source pretty easily. You can also find a complete Karaite Haggadah, a count of the Omer (only the first day so far), and various holiday songs at the Holidays section of the site.
180. Florida Atlantic University Jewish Sound Archive
A great archive of Jewish music of all sorts, and unlike its Dartmouth cousin, this one doesn't require registration. There's a lot of classic as well as modern chazanut. There are over 12000 songs/tracks (at the time of this writing, so who knows how many there are at the time of this reading), with all kinds of stuff. It's not easy to find things by service because there's just so much. It's really quite awesome -- and quite difficult to properly categorize its offerings. They are merging with the Recorded Sound Archives.
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.
182. 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.
183. 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.
185. Nafshenu Orchestra
WARNING: AUTOPLAY! A band that performs weddings and other events. They have a huge collection of music to listen to, though, including, obviously, a lot of wedding and dance music.
186. 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.
187. 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.
188. Or Shalom (Montreal, ON)
A Sephardic synagogue with two streaming players on the page with Moroccan nusach and music, one of which has a CD that can be downloaded. The one that can't be downloaded has several recordings of each part of the Friday night service, several parts of the Saturday morning service. However, you have to scroll through them to see them. The second player has music from a concert (the CDs can be downloaded, but there's no track information on them), which mostly includes piyutim (a couple from Havdalah) and features instrumental music as well.
189. 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.
190. 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.
191. Comunidad Bet-El de México (Mexico City)
In Spanish. A Conservative synagogue with links to videos and selections from various CDs by its cantors, including some Shabbat tunes and many Yiddish songs.
192. Kol Shofar
A shul's website with some good recordings, for Shabbat and more!
193. 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.
194. 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.
196. Bet Ha'am
A shul's website with recordings for Shabbat morning (not including Musaf).
198. Transliterated Siddur
This is a site mostly for transliterations, but some of them have a music symbol that provides recordings.
199. 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)
A website for learning to chant using Sephardic taamim, specifically Baghdadi, and Spanish and Portuguese as well.
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!
204. L'chu N'ran'nah
The website for a bentscher, which has recordings for a bunch of the zemirot therein as well as Birkat Hamazon itself.
205. Nava Tehila
In Hebrew (the English version is less complete). Nava Tehila is a Renewal prayer group in Jerusalem that has come up with nice new melodies and produced songs -- in quantity! -- for Kabbalat Shabbat, and a bit for High Holidays. The albums (see the bar at the top) are listenable, but only in the Hebrew version of the site. Parts of the site are still to come, including Shir Hashirim and Shabbat Arvit.
206. 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.
207. Mitaiman Yavo
In Hebrew. This is a Yemenite yeshiva in Jerusalem, with a lot of videos, lessons, and so on scattered throughout the site. The videos are all in one page here.
208. A Niggun A Day
This is an interesting blog, which highlights a tune every post. There's good stuff here, though it's not exactly easy to find!
210. 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.
212. Beth Shalom (Naperville, IL)
A synagogue (I can't tell if it has a denomination) with a lot of Shabbat morning tracks (and Eichah trope as well). The Saturday morning recordings also include Torah and haftarah trope.
213. 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.
215. Gardens Shul (Cape Town, South Africa)
A Modern Orthodox synagogue in Cape Town, in South Africa, with some wonderful recordings of their cantor and choir. They are hosted on their SoundCloud and include Shabbat, wedding, and High Holiday tunes.
216. Beth Tfiloh (Baltimore, MD)
A Modern Orthodox synagogue with a few links to recordings elsewhere, including YouTube, and several really wonderful accompanied recordings by their cantor. These include L'chah Dodi, Yism'chu B'malchut'cha, the Kedushah, Birkat Kohanim, Sim Shalom, some of Hallel, and Birkat Hachodesh.
217. Beth Abraham (Brookline)
A Sephardic synagogue in Brookline, MA. There are recordings of Torah reading, both regular and for holidays, and all of the megilot, including Kohelet.
218. Congregation Or Zarua
A few spirited recordings of Shabbat melodies, using quite a bit of Carlebach. Includes an interesting melody for Eliyahu Hanavi.
219. Selah Seattle Minyan
An egal synagogue's website with an almost complete Friday night service, as well as Kiddush and Shalom Aleichem.
222. 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.
224. Reconstructionist Shabbat Service Melodies with Rabbi Susan Falk
A two-disk set for a Reconstructionist Friday night, including often several melodies for texts, even some that aren't traditionally part of the liturgy like Hineh Mah Tov and Dodi Li. 7 tunes for L'chah Dodi, 5 for Adon Olam, 4 for Mi Chamocha, both Y'did Nefesh and Shalom Aleichem, etc. The only issue is that the recordings have some annoying clicking, unfortunately.
225. Institute Européen des Musiques Juives
In French. There's a collection of radio programs, in French, about Jewish music from around the world. I don't know how to find anything, though. There are also recordings under Médiathèque Halphen, though those are, that I could see, all excerpts.
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).
227. Jewish Folksongs
A very informative site with links to YouTube videos of folk songs of various types, including Yiddish and Ladino.
228. Ari Goldwag
Recordings of Saturday morning services, with nice nusach.
230. 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).
231. 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.
232. 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.
234. Selmar Cerini Music
Recordings of Selmar Cerini, who was Oberkantor at the Neue Synagogue in Breslau, Germany from 1894 until his death in 1923. As can be expected from 100-year-old recordings, these are very scratchy, but they're absolutely wonderful to listen to. There are several from High Holidays, kaddish from Geshem and Tal, Mi Adir from the wedding service, and a few other tunes.
235. 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.)
237. Kehillat Israel (Lansing)
A reconstructionist shul with some prayer resources for Shabbat. The linked page only has the Debbie Friedman Havdalah, the actual Debbie Friedman original, but clicking on "Lead Services KI Style" leads to another page with Shabbat morning recordings. There, there are two versions of selections from each service, Sim Shalom and Kol Haneshamah, to reflect differences between the two siddurim.
239. Fort Tryon Jewish Center
A synagogue website with a bunch of recordings of congregational melodies for Shabbat evening and morning.
240. 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.
241. Tremont Street Shul (Cambridge, MA)
Hey, it's my non-denominational 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).
242. Shirat Hayam (Marshfield, MA)
A Reconstructionist synagogue. 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.
243. Temple Sinai (Reno, NV)
A Reform synagogue's website with a mostly complete Kabbalat Shabbat, some of Shabbat maariv, and the opening of the Shabbat Torah service.
244. Mission Minyan
Kabbalat Shabbat and some high holidays. Includes some external recordings as well.
246. S&P Central
A site dedicated to Spanish and Portuguese communities, with links to videos on YouTube from the Paris, Montreal, Gibraltar, and London communities.
249. Arutz Sheva - Israel National News
A whole lot of playlists for the radio, grouped into selections of several songs with names like "Selection for Succot 2". Most of them have no track listings, unfortunately. There's some liturgical music, Israeli popular music, Chasidic, etc. The music opens in a player with no timer on it, so it's difficult to navigate, but it's really good for just listening!
250. Lippman Bodoff
A site by a son dedicated to his father's nusach. Contains extensive recordings of traditional High Holiday nusach, including many interesting melodies.
252. Chehebar Family Website
Charlie Chehebar has recorded a 63-minute tape of Egyptian chazanut, available here. I really don't know what's in it without listening to the whole thing, since I don't recognize the texts, but they're nice singable melodies.
253. La Musique Andalouse
In French. This website explains the concept of the nouba and presents some examples. There are several recordings here, of bakashot and piyutim in the weekly nouba -- you can find them under Nouba de la semaine as well as under Auditorium -- though it looks like there are still many things missing.
254. Park Avenue Synagogue
The website of the Park Avenue Synagogue in Manhattan. It features several beautiful recordings of produced songs with liturgical texts, as well as some chazanut.
256. Rabbi Pamela Frydman
An interesting site, centered around Rabbi Frydman's book Calling on God. It contains meditative chants based on repeating a few words, but it also has recordings of prayer melodies for Kabbalat Shabbat (and Ahavat Olam from maariv) under Melodies -> Shabbat and Holy Days. Additionally, there's a melody for Ana B'choach under Prayers -> Ana Bkoach.
258. Jewish Morocco
A blog with an emphasis on recordings of North African Jewish music, among other things. Unfortunately, it is a blog, so you'll have to do some digging if you want to find anything; the link goes to all posts tagged with "music". Most of the music is secular music, but you can find some music and text from the Haggadah at this post and Ki Lo Naeh, Kol Nidrei, and El Nora Alilah at this one. You can also browse the author's SoundCloud.
261. The Carlebach Minyan (London)
A Carlebach minyan with a bunch of Friday night tunes. Unfortunately -- and this is indeed very unfortunate -- most of the links on the page are dead, but you might be able to explore what once was through the Wayback Machine. At the second paragraph there's a link to a local page with recordings, and that one is still alive.
262. 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.
263. 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.
264. 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.
265. 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.
In French. A blog dedicated to the preservation of old vinyl records, including North African music. Searching by tags yields a few Algerian and Moroccan Jewish artists, but the only liturgical recordings are Jo Amar's Haggadah de Pessach, 1ère partie and 2ème partie.
Beautiful choral recordings (and sheet music) of a Slichot service by a British choir. There are also recordings of Sefirah services.
A sizeable collection of Sephardic liturgical songs, mostly arranged for four-part choir. I don't know what language the page is in, though.
269. Synagogenchor Basel
270. 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.
271. Taamei Emet
Instructional recordings on the Syrian t'amim for the Sifrai Emet (Job, Psalms, Proverbs), in English, with plenty of explanation for how the system works. It's the only source with this level of instruction that I know of so far.

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.
297. Aleph Holiday Liturgy Class Wiki
A class wiki for a liturgy class that has some recordings and sheet music on it, including a comparison of kaddish for N'ilah and Geshem. Most of the items on the wiki are notes on the liturgy itself rather than the melodies, though.
298. 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. Also on the site is La chorale EI de Léo Cohn, with several Jewish recordings from the 1930's including Tanu Rabanan (a version of Echad Mi Yodea), Yom M'nuchah, Hatikvah, Maoz Tzur, etc.

318. 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.

A site that aims to have recordings of everything, but it's not very populated yet, and it's unfortunately not easy to tell what's there and what isn't. There are some weekday nusach recordings, so far, and maybe other things as well.
343. Denver Academy of Torah
A yeshiva in Denver with recordings for weekday shacharit, not including the amidah, with tunes.

345. 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.

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.

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.
In Portuguese. A Messianic congregation in Vitória, Espírito Santo. The site isn't really all up, and most of the recordings are Christian-style church band songs (oddly, they're mostly in English though the titles are translated in Portuguese), but there's a nice melody for Eshet Chayil in there somewhere, and maybe a few other things.
369. Music of Kabbalah
A site with some music related to Kabbalah. I have only been able to get the four tracks at the bottom to work, and only when I do Save Link As... on them. One of them is Dror Yikra.

403. Learn Hebrew Prayers.com
A nifty Flash site with follow-along text and audio for some prayers. Unfortunately, it never got very far and is quite limited -- only candlelighting, hamotzi, and the Shema. The melody for candlelighting was one I hadn't heard before, though.
405. 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.
406. 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.
In French. This is a French Jewish magazine, and this part of it is about Jewish customs and such. Unfortunately, most of the audio is Real Audio, which means good luck. There's Torah and haftarah here, and a few other recordings under Nos fêtes. However, I haven't been able to get anything to play.
408. Kol Nidrei Traditions
Different traditions' recordings of Kol Nidrei, in Real Audio format. Or so it says. I couldn't get them to work.
In Hebrew. A site about Ethiopian Jews and their struggles, which also includes music. I couldn't figure out the connection of the music to liturgy, unfortunately, nor am I familiar with the liturgy of Ethiopian Jews at all, so I can't give much guidance here.
415. Congregation Shaarei Shalom
Completely Flash-based -- the whole thing is Flash. The site is of a Messianic synagogue. Also, there are no recordings on it yet as of when I last checked -- hopefully there will be nice ones soon!
417. B'nai Israel Oklahoma City
There used to be a cantor's page here with some stuff, but it looks like the old site is down and the new one has a link to a YouTube channel instead of recordings.
