This project is dedicated to the memory of Nat and Kitty Bellos


This unique anthology of Seder melodies, zmirot and other songs consists of over seventy different melodies from thirty-two Jewish individuals living in the UK, recorded over a three year-period between 2006 and 2009.

Wherever Jews came from they brought their music with them and each contributor to the REFLECTIONS project has generously shared, not only their songs, but also their personal family stories, helping to illuminate the social history and geography of the Jewish community in 21st century Britain through its music.

Until now these melodies have remained largely undocumented but the REFLECTIONS project has recorded and notated each song, setting it in the context of its ‘owner’s’ history. We hope this anthology will prove to be a valuable resource to students of music, of Judaism, and of social history.
