Judaica Sound Archives Logo

The Recorded Sound Archives features three major sound collections: Jazz, Judaic, and Vintage. Most of these recordings in the Jazz Collection were donated to FAU’s Music Department by Dr. Henry Ivey in 2006. The Judaica Sound Archives holds recordings that are considered Jewish, such as: cantorial, Yiddish, klezmer, Hebrew, and also recordings of Jewish performers, conductors and/or composers. All of the recordings in the Vintage 78s Collection were produced between 1901 and the mid-1950’s on 78 rpm discs. These recordings are of historic importance and may include recordings also found in the Judaica or Jazz Collections. For more information see the Recorded Sound Archives blog.
