With kind words lean towards singing for the Groom and Bride in Early Modern Ashkenaz

With Dr Diana Matut

Classes & Courses

Singing for a bride and groom from 1500-1800 was very different from what we know of Ashkenazic wedding traditions in Eastern Europe and beyond. This lecture will explore the traditions of singing during Jewish weddings in Ashkenaz and will answer questions such as: who was allowed to sing what to whom and when? And which repertoire did female singers perform and how? Diana Matut is a Yiddishist, musician, and Jewish Studies scholar.

From 2018 -2019 she was the first Lilly- and Michael Sommerfreund guest professor for Jewish Culture at the University College for Jewish Studies, Heidelberg. Diana Matut will be leading an international seminar on Jewish Music in the Early Modern Period (1500-1750) at the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies.
