Shiru Lo Shir Chadash 2
A Second Volume of Synagogue Music for the 20th Century
I am delighted to present my second volume of compositions for use in Synagogues. This volume has been edited by my good friend Charles Heller of Toronto, who, as well as supplying  chords throughout, has also arranged some items for Chazan and Choir.
This book is somewhat different from my first in that, as well as some pieces with strong melodic lines that I like so much, there are also a number of longer compositions for Chazan solo.
You will also find here compositions for prayers that are often hurried through, such as the Hoshia Et Amecha at the end of the Hoshanot and the Ribono Shel Olam before the ark for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
I am heartened by the reception that I received to Book 1, and hope that you will find some items in this book that you can use too. Although there are no CD’s to accompany Book 2, here you will find MP3’s of all the solo items to assist in learning.

From the Editor’s Foreword
“Geoffrey Shisler’s melodies have been created with the flair of the artist combined with a lifetime’s experience in teaching and performing traditional nusah. They match the rhythm and the sense of the words of the text, and provide a wonderful resource for the cantor or baal tefilah seeking new material which will be easily learnt and enjoyed by the congregation, as well as fitting naturally into the matrix of traditional nusah.”
(Charles Heller was for 30 years the Choir Director at Beth Emeth Bais Yehuda Synagogue, Toronto, Canada. He has worked as arranger and accompanist with many leading artists and cantors including the late David Kusevitsky, Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach and Marvin Hamlisch. He is on the editorial board of the Cantors Assembly (USA) and is the author of the award-winning book What To Listen For in Jewish Music (
