Shabbat, Hazzan & Meshorerim
This manuscript contains nine items by Abraham Singer for the Eve of the Sabbath, for one-three voice with ḥazan/meshorerim designations. It was probably composed in Holland, rather than in England, even though Singer was a seventeenth-century ḥazan from London, due to the presence of Dutch spellings.
