As stated in the subtitle, the collection of sound documents and contributions revolve around the work done by Leo Levi in ​​the first half of the fifties, when he launched a documentation work among the Italian Jewish Communities “in order to protect from forgetting the liturgical music of oral tradition, invoking the memory of officiating or frequenters of several synagogues, since in most cases the songs had already fallen into disuse”.

The book examines the documents collected in Piedmont, from which the most relevant data of the registration campaign, through the different traditions of Judaism in this region which, as you can imagine, are also reflected in the variety of musical expressions: Ashkenazi , Sephardic, Italian and French.
