Celebratory Ashkenazic and Sephardic Music
  from the European Jewish Tradition
 
  Music before our wedding ceremony                  
On 6 January 2001 Suzanne Smith and I were married at Temple Israel in New York City. Before the ceremony we had music performed by the (expanded) choir of Temple Israel, directed by Louise Basbas.1 I had asked Louise for music on this theme and she put the program together accordingly.
