Josef Rosenblatt

Joseph "Yossele" Rosenblatt (1882–1933) was perhaps the most famous chazzan, or cantor, of the twentieth century. He was born in the Ukraine and grew up assisting his father in delivering sacred services in the synagogue. He served as a cantor and performed in concerts throughout Eastern Europe before coming to America in 1912. He recorded primarily for Victor Records (between 1913 and 1924) and also recorded for the Edison and Columbia companies. Although he refused invitations to appear on the operatic stage, he continued to concertize after coming to America.
