Why is this app different from all other apps? A CANTOR'S SEDER instantly teaches the vanishing, rich musical tradition that is essential to creating a Passover filled with both joy and true meaning.
Afraid that you don’t even know where to start? Are the relatives who could remember every word and song sadly missing this year? This vibrant new app brings a complete experience of the Pesach evening meal, the retelling the Passover Story. The basic elements of the Haggadah are available here in both Hebrew and English, and can be read aloud by the family, or hosted by Cantor Emanuel C. Perlman's recorded reading and singing of the traditional texts and melodies.
Just some of the features of A CANTOR’S SEDER:
•Traditional Hebrew text that can be seamlessly translated into English at the touch of a button.
•An ability to customize the length of the Seder if young children are present.
•In contrast to other Passover apps, a traditional book format that replicates the experience of leafing through a Haggadah.
•The four questions, typically recited by the youngest family member, can now be recorded directly into the app and saved for posterity in an audio scrapbook.
•State-of-the-art professional sound quality from Soundtrack Recording Studios, a world renowned New York City recording studio
A CANTOR’S SEDER captures the great musical tradition that has forever given this holiday such enduring meaning.
Cantor Emanuel Perlman, lyric tenor, is in his 15th year as the Hazzan of Chizuk Amuno Congregation in Baltimore, Maryland. Dubbed by talk show legend Larry King as “a combination Caruso and Mel Torme”, Hazzan Perlman has performed both the classics and his own original compositions throughout the world.
What's New in Version 2.00
The ability to record and playback family performances of "The Four Questions" has been greatly expanded -- and yet simplified. Performances of Hodu and Chad Gadya (One Little Goat) by Hazzan Perlman have been added to the haggadah, as well as numerous historical footnotes from Rabbi Moshe Schualy. The "Custom Seder" feature, which allows you to bookmark pages in the haggadah, has been improved. And, a more readable font has been chosen for all the english text.
