Abraham A. Schwadron: Editor (From Field and Archive Recordings)
Chad Gadya - One Kid (Folkways Recording F-8920)

Order #: 01349
Chad Gadya is the last of four semi-liturgical songs added to the the Traditional Passover seder. It first appeared in print in 1590, in a Prague Haggadah. The 25 examples of Chad Gadya contained on this recording, perfomed in Aramaic, Yiddish, Ladino, Russian, Italian, and German, were selected form an extensive collection--180 versions--compiled by the editor-researcher Abraham A. Schwadron, Chairman of the Music Department at University of California at Los Angeles. Included with this recording, are the inserts that were included in the original Folkways Record with detailed description of each version of the Chad Gadya. Truly a historical document.
