Ashkenazic Trop

As many people asked me about the Ashkenazzi1 trop2 for the megillelaayen3, I recorded some samples. For this purpose, I confined myself to minneg Basel, which is basically minneg Elzas with some Southern German influences.

Here's a Paschto, for instance.

Here's a Pozer, and related, a nice Shalsheles.

The well known Sôf posuk.

And finally, a whole posuk. Pay attention to the nice distribution of rôles between chazzen (narrator) and chazzen sheini (Esther).

1. That is, Yekkish. (back to text)

2. In Hybhrit: Tamea mikra. (back to text)

3. That is, leyning of the megille. (back to text)

OMG. When I saw that the trop was from a yodeling course, I started laughing so hard there were tears in my eyes.
