5) Mama Rochel
6) CarlebachJuly 28, 2021 7:01 pm at 7:01 pm #1995430
Memories? Do you mean the one song in Journeys? I don’t think either of them has it on their album.July 29, 2021 12:27 am at 12:27 am #1995476
Boruch S. punted on No. 2 (Which slow Carlebach song, has a low, middle and a high part to it?)
Well, it depends on how you are defining “low, medium and high” but I think at least one popular arrangement of Od Avinu Chai would qualify.July 29, 2021 8:02 am at 8:02 am #1995561
Gam Ki EileichJuly 29, 2021 8:07 am at 8:07 am #1995562
(MBD sang on Hasc)July 29, 2021 12:08 pm at 12:08 pm #1995670
@worldsaver, I would not call Eilecha a slow song, but Gam Ki Eileich definitely is correct (although it was not the song I was thinking of)
For #1 the song is sung on both their albums, not concert. One more hint, You know the songJuly 29, 2021 12:09 pm at 12:09 pm #1995671July 29, 2021 12:32 pm at 12:32 pm #1995713

Which famous to-be singer sang a Miami Boys Choir song in yiddish in his youth?
Name 3 trio of singers that are relatedJuly 29, 2021 12:32 pm at 12:32 pm #1995712
I believe that V’haviosem was on both a Begun album (Toronto Pirchei) and MBD (I can’t recall offhand which album, but I believe he sang it as part of a medley).July 29, 2021 1:09 pm at 1:09 pm #1995721
DaMoshe- MBD sings Vhaveeosim on MBD and FriendsJuly 29, 2021 1:09 pm at 1:09 pm #1995720
@BaalHabooze- he hits a high C on Ani Maamin on the Aderaba album at 5:09July 29, 2021 1:09 pm at 1:09 pm #1995719
@whitecar- i was referring to the “memories” on MBD’s 1981 album titled “memories”. I know Yerachmiel Begun composed the song but I wasn’t sure if it’s on one of his albumsJuly 29, 2021 4:13 pm at 4:13 pm #1995797
Trios – I can only think of 2 offhand, but they’re actually groups of 4, not 3:
David Werdyger a”h, MBD, Yeedle, Mendy Werdyger
Avraham Fried, Benny Friedman, Shmuel and Bentzi MarcusJuly 29, 2021 4:14 pm at 4:14 pm #1995805
Forgot to write, the kid was Yisroel Williger, who sang The Gedolei Hador on the album Klal Yisroel Together.July 29, 2021 4:15 pm at 4:15 pm #1995744
@BoruchSchwartz – not bad, great answer. I was thinking of the note he hits at the end of his English song ‘the time is now’. which one is takeh higher?July 29, 2021 4:15 pm at 4:15 pm #1995743
Boruchschwarts got the answer for #1. #2 the answer I had in mind was Vehayu LemshisuJuly 29, 2021 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #1995819
BaalHabooze- very good, that is also a C so it’s a tieJuly 29, 2021 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #1995820
whitecar, what answer were you looking for on #1? I don’t believe Memories was ever performed on a Begun album?July 29, 2021 7:25 pm at 7:25 pm #1995843July 30, 2021 10:37 am at 10:37 am #1995925
Name 3 songs that MBD performed on his own albums only after performing them on albums where he wasn’t the main singer.July 30, 2021 11:46 am at 11:46 am #1995967
Who had a solo in a Miami Boys Choir Concert with his father playing the main instrument?
Can you name at least 4 boys from MBC that came out with their own CD later on?
What choir did Yerachmeiel Begun have before Miami Boys Choir?July 30, 2021 11:47 am at 11:47 am #1995966
@DaMoshe -“…the kid was Yisroel Williger, who sang The Gedolei Hador on the album Klal Yisroel Together.”
Trio of related singers: 1 – Avraham Fried, Benny Friedman, Simcha Friedman: 2 – Eli Marcus, Shmueli and Bentzi Marcus: 3 – Reb Dovid Werdiger, MBD, and YEEDLE WerdigerJuly 30, 2021 11:48 am at 11:48 am #1995963
Psach La’nu Shaar is one that I believe he first performed with othersJuly 30, 2021 11:48 am at 11:48 am #1995961
someday (originally on a JEP album). that’s all i can think of at the moment.July 30, 2021 11:49 am at 11:49 am #1995960
#2 has countless answers. Aside from those already mentioned, how about V’chol Hachaim. Adir hu, but maybe that’s not slow enough. V’zocher, if you count the opening as a part of the song. Same on V’eineinu Sirena. The old Mimkomcha from Haneshama Lach record. Mikdash Melech. Melech Rachaman. and the list goes on and on.July 30, 2021 7:07 pm at 7:07 pm #1996011
Baal Habooze: Can you explain why Benny Friedman is related to Avraham Fried but not the Marcus brothers? And interesting to note that you left Mendy and Yisroel Werdyger out of MBD’s family. Chazan Ari Klein too for that matter.July 31, 2021 11:13 pm at 11:13 pm #1996100
I think Lipa is related to Daskal and to Meilich Kohn.
Avraham Fried highest note: “I need your embrace”. On don’t hide from me.August 1, 2021 1:27 am at 1:27 am #1996112IYKParticipant
Real tough Jewish music question…
Which Jewish musician do more people know the lyrics to the songs than those who know the tunes?August 1, 2021 2:14 am at 2:14 am #1996115
Spinner (with father)
M. ShapiroAugust 1, 2021 2:28 am at 2:28 am #1996117
Vahaviosim was not composed by Yerachmiel Begun.August 1, 2021 10:22 am at 10:22 am #1996191IYKParticipant
I’m not going to be answering the previous question here. But I’ve come to notice that the only thing that will help the world now is davening/praying that all creations are granted empathy and awareness. I hope this message gets to those who will understand the gravity of the situation at hand. I cannot afford to keep posting here as I seem to get nothing out of it in return. So goodbye.August 1, 2021 1:07 pm at 1:07 pm #1996207
@IYK very confused with your comment. @Baal Habooz, Shwekey was also a Miami alumni if I’m not mistaken (I may very well be). Initially it was the Toronto Boys ChoirAugust 1, 2021 1:09 pm at 1:09 pm #1996208
Which songs are these Lyrics to?
“But still it hurts me just the same”
“His eyes are Gazing wide”
“Now the day has come and it will last forever”
“your faith alone can save your soul”August 1, 2021 3:06 pm at 3:06 pm #1996219
“His eyes are gazing wide”….from Unity Album by MBD and SM
Eagle soaring by
could you lift him up with you now
and fly him home w justice pride and freedom,
His eyes are gazing wide
From behind the bars he prays now
With faith with joy, oh how we wait to greet him…August 1, 2021 4:30 pm at 4:30 pm #1996237☕️coffee addictParticipant
“your faith alone can save your soul”
Shwekey’s shema yisrael!
Regarding Avraham fried’s high note it isn’t “TEACH ME HOW TO SING!” (Don’t cry for me) I didn’t know there’s any higher than thatAugust 2, 2021 12:29 am at 12:29 am #1996270
VAhaviosim may not have been composed by Yerachmiel. But wasn’t that album mostly his? (A little bit of Harvey Erlich and Heshy Nussbaum too.)
Perhaps TEACH me how to sing was not included because falsettos (kop shtimmer) don’t count.August 2, 2021 2:00 am at 2:00 am #1996280
He composed 9 of the 12 songs, but Vahaviosim was one of the 3 which he didn’t compose. He is credited on the record as the assistant conductor, while Harvey Erlich conducted the choir and Heshi Nussbaum produced the record. Personally, I wouldn’t call it a Yerachmiel Begun album since he didn’t produce it and was only the assistant to the head choir conductor, but I guess I could understand why whitecar calls it a Yerachmiel Begun album.August 2, 2021 2:23 am at 2:23 am #1996289
Name 3 songs that MBD performed on his own albums only after performing them on albums where he wasn’t the main singer.
BoruchSchwartz already mentioned Someday (from JEP 4, then on his The English Album); Neshomele was on Journeys 2 before the Double Album came out, and I believe 2 songs from an Ohel Concert were later put on his own albums; Lonely People (The English Album) and Kol Dodi (We Are One). He sang Tifiloh L’oni on M’shor’rim, and Moh Oshiv on Hallel (then HASC) before singing them on Kumzitz. So I’m counting 6, not sure if DaMoshe didn’t think of all of them or categorized them differently than I did.August 2, 2021 8:57 am at 8:57 am #1996348
DY: Nice to be discussing music with you again 🙂
I wasn’t thinking about concert albums – I should have specified studio albums.
Neshomele was the 2nd one, and the 3rd one I had was Take the Time – it was on an album that was mainly his father, called Father & Sons/Biglal Avos, and he later performed it on his English Collection.August 2, 2021 12:15 pm at 12:15 pm #1996386
IIRC, MBD sang Sameach Tesamach from R B Chait at a HASC concert (I think HASC 3) and recorded it on an album later.August 2, 2021 1:52 pm at 1:52 pm #1996438
How could I forget Neshomele? That’s my favorite song.
@ IYK- Which Jewish musician do more people know the lyrics to the songs than those who know the tunes?
– maybe Abie Rotenberg?
But based on IYK’s next post, I’m not sure what in the world it means but it is possible that IYK will never be visiting this forum again so we may never get the answer.August 2, 2021 1:53 pm at 1:53 pm #1996442
Does anyone know of the origin of the songs on MBD’s kumzitz album? For example Moh Oshiv, Lo Omus and some others are often considered by many to be MBD songs but as far as I know they are only on the kumzitz album. Were any of these songs originals for the kumzitz album or were they originally song by other people?August 2, 2021 2:57 pm at 2:57 pm #1996468
Moh Oshiv was originally on Laibel’e Haschel’s album (called Moh Oshiv) and later sung by MBD on a Suki and Ding All Star album called Hallel.
Lo Omus is a Boruch Chait song originally sung by MBD and Michoel Stretcher on Live in Yerushalayim (Zichron Menachem). Schwebel Scharf and Levine later sang it on Areshes S’foseinu.August 3, 2021 1:38 am at 1:38 am #1996522Yserbius123Participant

They sing Shir Hamaalos to almost anything, but maybe you’re thinking of Od Yishoma (two come to mind – Carlebach’s less famous one, from his first record, and the famous Od Yishoma played first at every chasunah, which I believe is a Modzitzer nigun).August 5, 2021 9:46 am at 9:46 am #1997375
Here are some lyrics:

“Your shame and disgrace, a wound in my heart”
