Many communities have professional cantors who lead the community regularly in prayer. This practice dates back several centuries, and it has led to the development of an extensive repertoire of cantorial music. Often written in the notational system of classical Western music, the cantorial repertoire represents an element of virtuosity and soloism. Professional cantors are especially important in cases where the majority of the congregation does not know the words or nusah of prayer, but many congregations find that a cantor with a beautiful voice may enhance the synagogue experience.
The technology of recording in the last few generations allows us to hear voices of great cantors such as Jan Peerce also a prominent opera singer , Israel Alter, and Yossele Rosenblatt. Hymns and poetry constitute a subsection of the prayerbook.
As early as the fifth century, Jewish poets composed piyyutim , poetry intended to enhance the prayer service. These piyyutim, as well as the more recent hymns and songs inserted into the prayer service, possess a regular poetic meter. For that reason, hymns and piyyutim often lend themselves to more regularly metered musical settings. It is that populist element of Hasidut that encouraged the melodies of niggunim to be relatively simple and repetitive.
Often, the words of the niggunim were omitted in favor of humming or syllabic singing. The practice of singing niggunim was popularized beyond the boundaries of Hasidut in the late 20th century by Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, who composed and recorded hundreds of them. Today, niggunim may be heard as part of synagogue services as well as outside the context of prayer at celebrations and lifecycle events. Rosh Hashanah.
