Throughout the past century, American-Jewish composers, and some non-Jewish musicians as well, have infused mainstream musical forms and styles — from popular song & musical theater to folk music and bluegrass; from classical music and jazz to reggae & world music — with Jewish passions &and yearning as well as Jewish musical themes and motifs: with the sounds of Jewish chant and the texts of Jewish prayer.
