This manuscript (Mus. 93) is a collection of Hebrew compositions, numbered I-XV. As in the manuscript, each set of items will be given separately. The pieces were composed between 1831 and 1835, for various occasions at the Berlin Jüdische Gemeindeschule Talmud Torah and the Auerbach'sche Waisenhaus für jüdische Knaben. The initiation of the compositions is attributed to Baruch Auerbach. Mus.93 VI-VII are missing from the collection.


This manuscript contains Schauer's setting of Auerbach's Ordnung der Todtenfeier in five sections. Set for two to four voice choir (SA and SSAA) with full text underlay in Romanized Hebrew. The date is taken from the colophon of p.14. Digital image collection starts with page 4.
