This is my personal list of sites with mp3 and other recordings of nusach and Jewish liturgy. I collected these links because I am deeply interested in the music of Jewish liturgy, and I want to learn every melody there is for everything. I am not likely to ever reach this impossible goal, but this list is my attempt at it, at least!
These resources are arranged by an algorithm that considers how extensive a resource the resource is in each area. This consideration is subjective, but if you are looking for a particular High Holiday tune, you are more likely to find it toward the top of the High Holiday page than the bottom. Resources in gray boxes contain significant non-Ashkenazi nusach, in some cases alongside Ashkenazi nusach and in other cases to its exclusion.
Keep posted, since I add new resources to this list from time to time. I am also working on a larger project, NusachDB, to collect the melodies themselves. If you know of any useful sites not on this list, or notice a miscategorization, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Notable missing (or not well-covered) recordings include the Saturday night portions of Maariv, Kiddush Levanah, the Hoshanot of Sukkot, the Hakafot and Chatan Torah passages of Simchat Torah, the Al Hanisim paragraph in the Amidah and Birkat Hamazon of Chanukah, Purim, and Yom Haatzmaut (in the Conservative tradition, anyway), the Haggadah chanting of the Magid and others, and, of course, any less famous melodies for well-covered services like Kabbalat Shabbat and Hallel. If you know of any sites with these, please send them along, or hey, record them yourself if you'd like!
Click "Catalogued recordings" to see which recordings or sheet music in a particular site have been added to NusachDB. For the foreseeable future, these do not represent the totality of recordings for most sites, but the lists will get more complete with time.
Please enjoy this list and may it increase your learning.
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.
Some recordings of Shabbat songs and prayers, including a nice recording (with instrumental accompaniment) of the Birkat Hamazon that uses some interesting melodies at times. The site is difficult to traverse, but there are other musical resources on it: Chanukah blessings, Chanukah songs, more Chanukah songs, Purim songs, and Haggadah songs.
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.
Note: also includes Kiddush under Sefardi
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!
Note: includes a ton of zemirot and multiple melodies; there are additional melodies under Yekkish Semirot
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 no longer updated, with the new site being Atar Hapiyut V'hat'filah. The old content uses Flash, so it might be, well, very difficult to get to it right now.
In Hebrew. This is the remake of Invitation to Piyut and Shituf Piyut. It's more difficult to navigate but has more stuff, and it includes most of the old stuff as well (but not all, for legal reasons).
In Hebrew (the English version is the legacy site, Invitation to Piyut, which is no longer maintained). Absolutely wonderful collection of piyutim (and regular blessings and psalms too, if you look hard enough) from all over the world, run by the National Library of Israel. It's massive, constantly updated, and it takes submissions if you want to send in your own recordings that they don't yet have. It's the successor site to Invitation to Piyut and Shitufiyut, containing (most of) the recordings from both.
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.
Note: lots of zemirot under Songs/Shabbos Songs
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.
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!
Note: under Benshen
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.
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.
Note: includes line after Shalom Aleichem, Azamer Bishvachin; Zemirot under Chasidic Classics; there are other things elsewhere like this Hebrew kiddush video
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.
Note: includes a very large number of zemirot, including, interestingly enough, Ribon Kol Haolamim (שירי ברסלב - ניגוני חסידי ברסלב - שבת)
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 Azamer B'Shvachin, Eshet Chayil, Kiddush (mumbled), Mah Y'didut, M'nuchah V'simchah, Priestly Blessing, Shalom Aleichem, Tzur Mishelo, Tzam'ah Nafshi, Yah Ribon, Yom Zeh L'Yisrael
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.
Note: includes beautiful harmonized recordings by the Mayer Davis Group of the Kiddush itself and the zemirot
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.
Many recordings of table songs from various traditions, and not just for Shabbat! Some are piyutim also sung at other occasions (Adon Olam, Ein Keloheinu, Yigdal). It's a sister site to London Sephardi Music.
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.
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.
Interesting melodies from an Iraqi tradition, for a variety of texts including Kol Nidrei, Shabbat piyutim, etc.
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.
Note: includes Shalom Aleichem, candlelighting, a modified kiddush text, hamotzi
A bunch of 1980's recordings of Shabbat table songs with a Sephardic flair. There are many zemirot here. The previous page also has a Purim song.
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).
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.
Note: includes a recording of all of Kiddush in the Yemenite tradition, and probably has all of the zemirot you could want
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 is a sister site and features many of the same recordings.
Note: includes some zemirot under Table Songs and Kiddush under Shabbat
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: under Kabbalat Shabbat
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.
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.
A rabbi and his family have put up three wonderful albums of Shabbat table songs, Sheva Brachot table songs, and year-round songs.
A Conservative synagogue with a bunch of blessings, in .ram and .mp3 formats, over bread, wine, etc. Mostly spoken, not chanted.
In Hebrew. A site with Moroccan videos and such. Most are on YouTube, but it's fairly extensive. There are bakashot, Shabbat piyutim, etc.
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.
Note: with nice musical accompaniment
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: includes a few zemirot in the Niggunim section
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.
Note: at Shabbat Seder on sidebar
A bunch of recordings of Shabbat and weekday services. Some are quite musical.
Note: includes two (slightly different) versions of kiddush and Eshet Chayil
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".
A shul with some recordings, including a nice high holiday selection.
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.
Note: several Zemirot, and a Kiddush (in Other Songs)
Beautifully harmonized melodies for Saturday morning services and niggunim for z'mirot. Also has a lot of high holiday tunes.
In French. A site of shiurim that also includes some recordings of nusach (Sephardic). Some are under Chabbath -> Chants du Chabbath (includes many zemirot and other piyutim), a few are under La Prière (most of the pages there are empty, though), and a few are under Les fêtes juives -> Pessa'h. Not all of the recording links work, unfortunately.
This is a site mostly for transliterations, but some of them have a music symbol that provides recordings.
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.
Note: under Music
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.
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 Kiddush in nusach (not the famous Lewandowski melody)
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.
A nice and rather extensive synagogue resource, including Haggadah nusach, a big set of Youtube videos, other Shabbat sound files, trope, and bentsching.
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.
Shabbat recordings. They're deliberately, but agonizingly, slow; however, they've got some hard-to-find stuff.
Incredibly beautiful recordings of Kabbalat Shabbat, as well as a whole bunch of songs and zemirot. Includes weekday maariv and mincha.
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.
Tisch songs, as well as Yeshivat Reishit's beautifully harmonized high holiday tunes.
Lots of normal Shabbat morning stuff, including some melodies omitted by the previous two, but the interface is a bit awkward.
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.
A Conservative synagogue with recordings of Friday night, Haggadah, Chanukah, and Purim melodies, as well as several melodies for Sim Shalom.
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).
Note: includes blessings for candles, wine, and bread under children's songs; kiddush is under the B'nei Mitzvah recordings
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.
In Portuguese. Features a bunch of Brazilian Chabad recordings, including Chanukah, z'mirot, etc.
Texts and recordings of pretty much everything one might need for one's own Shabbat celebration, including kiddush, zemirot, etc. Recipes too!
Note: includes Shalom Aleichem, Eshet Chayil, and M'nuchah V'simchah, but other pages are spoken, not chanted
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!
A Reform synagogue with several recordings, often along with the text.
A shul's website with some good recordings, for Shabbat and more!
The website for a bentscher, which has recordings for a bunch of the zemirot therein as well as Birkat Hamazon itself.
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.
Note: includes a bunch of stuff from the bentscher
A band's website, with some rock settings for Shabbat piyutim and zemirot.
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 Kiddush
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 Hazanut, accompanied Moroccan chants
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.
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.
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: The old site, with the recordings, is still here.
Note: Kiddush under Shabbat Morning for some reason
An independent congregation with a fairly extensive audio library.
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.
Note: includes a folk-like original Shalom Aleichem melody; the videos section has more blessings
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.
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.
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 kiddush
Various Chasidic recordings and niggunim. Has an extensive section on Ana B'choach and three versions of Shoshanat Yaakov.
Note: A few Zemirot and Shalom Aleichem
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.
A Conservative synagogue; there are recordings for various blessings as well as haggadah tunes and a full weekady maariv.
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).
Some beautiful accompanied recordings of mostly piyutim with melodies from around the world. It's the same collection as from Bnai Jeshurun and at Invitation to Piyut North America
In Hebrew. Has various videos of piyutim and musical performances.
A few piyutim from various traditions, with a focus on the Near and Middle East.
A shul's website with recordings for Shabbat morning (not including Musaf).

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.
A shul's website with few Shabbat morning recordings and Friday night Kiddush.
A singing group with some demo recordings in Real Audio format of blessings and z'mirot.
The first congregation in America! It's in the Spanish and Portuguese tradition, and it contains a wealth of recordings, including a complete Shabbat morning service, complete weekday services, complete parshiyot, and much more.
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.
Note: the Kiddush link by itself is line by line
Quite a few recordings of the Constantine nusach (Sephardic), including Torah reading, Hallel, the Haggadah, and various other songs and blessings.
A site dedicated to the memory of Ronny Horvitz and his melodies from Frankfurt. Contains taamim for Torah and haftarah, some Esther,

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.
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 blessing of children with accompaniment
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!
Note: includes a few recordings of Yah Ribon and Yom Zeh L'yisrael
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.
Note: includes a niggun for Asader Seudatah
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).
A few Sephardic recordings by Cantor Hezkia Eliezer "Kiki" Arochas, including Kiddush, some Tehilim (Shirei Hamaalot), all of weekday Shacharit, and more.
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.
Note: includes kiddush
This is a site that sells sheet music, but there's some available for free as well, most notably some Rosenblatt recitatives.
Sephardic recordings of some prayers, with a focus on High Holidays, and the entire Torah recited.
Note: includes kiddush

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.
Note: includes a melody for Shalom Aleichem
Kabbalat Shabbat and some high holidays. Includes some external recordings as well.
A site dedicated to Spanish and Portuguese communities, with links to videos on YouTube from the Paris, Montreal, Gibraltar, and London communities.

Tracks from a bar-mitzvah CD. Includes a nice Ashrei melody.
Note: includes Kiddush
Some MIDI files of various songs and prayers.
A Reform synagogue with with several Shabbat service recordings that include explanations of the prayers.
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.
An Orthodox synagogue with a few tracks on how to lead davening for weekday shacharit and Shabbat kiddush (night and day).
In Hebrew, but there's a French site as well that's somewhat different with an odd sidebar. A site dedicated to North African Judaism. You can find taamim and Torah reading here and here and some piyutim (Y'did Nefesh, Yom Shabaton, Ki Eshmera Shabbat, a few others) here.
A long list of audio shiurim, but also some songs as well, including L'chah Dodi, M'ein Olam Haba, Adon Olam, and a couple of others.
A center for K-5 Jewish learning that has melodies to help the children learn prayers. These include basic parts of the Shabbat morning service and Friday kiddush.

A few downloadable .mp3's; includes three different versions of Shalom Aleichem, as well as sheet music for some Haggadah songs (and .mp3's generated by the music software, not sung)
This is a Christian site, but it contains a few recordings: Oseh Shalom, Eshet Chayil, and the first paragraph of the Birkat Hamazon.
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.
A Reform synagogue with some audio files for some of the basic Shabbat prayers.
An indedependent congregation; there are a couple of Ramón Tasat recordings here and links to a YouTube channel.
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.
A Jewish publisher with online resources, including sheet music for halom Aleichem and Eliyahu Hanavi.
