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.
Note: alternate Hallel under Haggadah including Magid-7
2. London Sephardi Congregational Melodies
This is really, really cool. It's a very complete resource for London Sephardic nusach. This main site focuses on congregational melodies, but it links to Shaar Hashamayim for the chanting and the London Sephardi Choir Archive for choral recordings. Here, I consider them all together.
Note: a special Rosh Chodesh melody is under Sabbath Morning Part 1 in the congregational site; additional version under Haggadah
3. 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!
4. 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.
Note: includes special Sukkot tune for start of Ps. 118
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 It's actively growing and receiving regular updates, so this information may soon be out of date.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).
Note: in the Rosh Chodesh section, includes melodies for various times of the year
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. 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.
Note: alternate Hallel under Passover (Seder)
9. 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.
10. 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.
11. 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.
Note: includes two melodies for the opening blessings, and a new (to me) melody for Pitchu Li
12. Recorded Liturgy - Rabbi Josh
Excellent source for Pesach, high holidays, Shabbat morning, and festivals. Big .wav files, but the nusach is really good.
Note: more Hallel under Haggadah
13. 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.
Note: includes an interesting B'tzet Yisrael melody and intricate nusach
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.
Note: includes many renditions; one is inside I canti di Scola Tempio; Baruch Habah under weddings can also be used for Ps. 118
15. Ashkenazi/Sefardi Torah Leining/Reading and Tehilim MP3 Audio
Not what I'm interested in -- until "More Cantorial", where you'll find a Haggadah recording of Cantor Pinchas Rabinowitz with a whole bunch of new tunes. Awesome. Would totally rock if it didn't have blinking animated GIFs.
Note: straight nusach (except Ps. 118), under Various
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.
Note: full nusach
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. 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.
A site to teach the Shabbat services. There are multiple versions of many things, interesting melodies, and it's rather thorough.
Note: includes interesting melodies, sometimes multiple per psalm, but only includes the half Hallel (no first half of Psalms 115 and 116)
21. Nusach Tefillah
A lot of nusach recordings by Ezra Lubelsky. They're very well-done. You will find complete Friday night services, shacharit, musaf, and minchah, Hallel, Rosh Hashanah maariv, shacharit, and musaf, Yom Kippur maariv and musaf, Esther, and it looks like they're adding more.
22. 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.
Note: includes many melodies less often heard; a great resource
23. 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.
24. Constantine Tefilot
Quite a few recordings of the Constantine nusach (Sephardic), including Torah reading, Hallel, the Haggadah, and various other songs and blessings.
25. 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.
Note: under women's service for Rosh Chodesh; note that it's a short Hallel because it's for Rosh Chodesh
26. 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.
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. The site has a part 2.
28. Beth Shalom Seattle
A nice and varied collection of recordings, including including extensive festival morning nusach!
29. 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.
30. 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. [Jewish Table Singing](https://sites.google.com/site/jewishtablesinging/) is a sister site and features many of the same recordings.
Note: includes two videos of Baruch Haba (Ps. 118) by a choir, and the rest of Hallel under Rosh Chodesh (I couldn't get most of the tracks to play in the browser, but I was able to download them and use iTunes); some additional tracks under Pesach
31. 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.
32. 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!
Note: straight nusach
33. Kol Emeth
A bunch of recordings of Shabbat and weekday services. Some are quite musical.
35. 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.
36. 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.
Note: under Seder Songs
37. 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.
39. Bnai Shalom of Olney
A Conservative synagogue. There are a few things from various Shabbat services, as well as Havdalah and weekday maariv.
40. 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.
41. Passover Sing Along
Many songs from the Haggadah, including some less usual ones, and often many tunes -- four 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.
43. 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.
44. 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.
45. 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.
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; in particular, you can find [sheet music for z'mirot](http://www.daat.ac.il/daat/shabat/zmirot/tohen-2.htm) at some of these pages.
Note: Moroccan chanting; Ps. 113-117 but no Ps. 118
47. 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.
48. 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.
Note: under Tefilot and Hagadá, but very repetitive nusach mostly
49. 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.
50. 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.
51. Hazzan Daniel Halfon
A wealth of Spanish and Portuguese melodies (and some chazanut), including parts of Hallel, S'lichot, festival liturgy, Shabbat, and a whole bunch of stuff, along with a bit of info on each melody.
52. 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.
53. Invitation to Piyut
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.
55. 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.
57. 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.
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.
59. 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.
60. 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.
61. Congregation Or Zarua
A few spirited recordings of Shabbat melodies, using quite a bit of Carlebach. Includes an interesting melody for Eliyahu Hanavi.
62. 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.
Note: a few melodies in the Haggadah section, though some are kids' songs
63. 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.
Note: includes a responsive reading of Psalms 113, 114, 115 without Hallel nusach
64. 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.
15 albums' worth of Regesh music, featuring melodies by Rav Shmuel Brazil, which includes plenty of liturgical tunes and z'mirot and such. Very Flash-based. There's also another section with R. Brazil's niggunim under More Extras.
66. Temple Emanu-El (NYC)
A large liberal New York synagogue. The links on the sidebar include a recording of a seder, with piano accompaniment, where there are some very pretty English songs and many English readings in addition to the standard Hebrew tunes. There are also Chanukah blessings, Shabbat blessings (audio under Life Cycles->Bar and Bat Mitzvah, as well as under Wosrhip->Music at Emanu-El), and more.
67. Kehilat Hadar (New York)
An egalitarian minyan, associated with Mechon Hadar. The website contains Saturday morning mp3 files with good directions, which is very nice, as well as the (free) digital download for the Pri Eitz Hadar CD, full of great harmonized melodies. There are also High Holiday pages each year, but they're a bit hard to find; here's the one for 2016.
68. 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.
70. K'hal Adas Jeshurun
Very extensive and very specific recordings of a lot of things, in Netherlands and Ashkenazi traditions. Really, really cool.
Note: very little
71. 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!
Note: includes B'tzet Yisrael, Eli Atah
72. 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).
Note: includes just the beginning of Psalm 113
Various Chasidic recordings and niggunim. Has an extensive section on Ana B'choach and three versions of Shoshanat Yaakov.
Note: B'tzet Yisrael, under Pesach
74. 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.
75. 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).
76. 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.
Note: includes Baruch Haba
78. 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.
Note: includes Mah Ashiv
79. 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.
80. Be'chol Lashon
An organization to promote global Judaism that happens to also promote some Jewish music from around the world. There are just a few tracks, including a few from the Abayudaya in Uganda some Zimbabwean and Sephardic popular music, and a YouTube video of a Sephardic Yah Ribon.
81. La Haggadah de Paque -- Joseph Bloch
A French Ashkenazic haggadah with some sheet music at the end. Includes Hodu/Ana/Adir Hu, two tunes for Ki Lo Naeh, Chasal Sidur Pesach, and two tunes for Echad Mi Yodea, one of which is in French.
There are only two working tunes here, for Mim'kom'cha and for Mah Ashiv. Looks like a test site that never got off the ground.
