Re: Yiddish poetry

Have a listen to The Well with Chava Alberstein and my beloved Klezmatics.
Especially for her rendition of Mayn Shvester Khaye.  She also has done a
film on the Yiddish poets of Israel and set their songs to music.

I have been asked to gather songs written on Yiddish poetry. Apart from
Sutzkever that I researched last fall, and apart from Lazar Weiner's work,
I realize that most of the Yiddish Art songs I perform have lyrics from
lithurgical or folk origins. Any idea?
