Re: Yiddish Peysakh songs

Lori - it looks like you got a hold of an Arbeter Ring or Sholem Aleichem
Shul hagode,no?  There are a number of us on the list who know those songs
but I don't know where the music is printed. Some of them are recitations
and not songs if I remember correctly. Definitely #c, the Yiddish kiddish
was not sung. Zalmen Mlotek should know about all of them and where to get
the music. They are all American creations.  I believe the Mloteks in their
column "Perl fun der yidisher literatur" in the Yiddish Forverts newspaper
wrote about the Yiddish Khad-Gadyo. I had always thought it was by Peretz,
but as you found out, it is not clear. - Itzik
