Description :Baruch was a singer from the early 20th century, and although he was born in Poland he quickly relocated to Belgium, fleeing to France in the 30s following the Nazi occupation. When the war had subsided, Baruch carried on his singing in both France and Belgium and concentrated his efforts on traditional Jewish religious songs (rather than the Opera he had been trained to perform) and was eventually picked up to release a box set of 78rpm picture discs in 1950. I can't even imagine how these discs looked, but this collects all of Baruch's recorded material from the time and it's a pleasure to hear it like this. I don't have a background in traditional Jewish music so there are few reference points for me, but that doesn't prevent this collection from being hugely emotive and enjoyable, performed by a man with an effortlessly affecting voice. At times he sounds like the great singers of the 30s and 40s and at others he comes over alldeep and full of a worldly gravitas, but at all times there is an innocence to Baruch's tones which is indicative of the age. Even though he would have witnessed the horrors of a bloody war, he manages to instil his recordings with hope and beauty, and listening now this is more than inspirational. Before listening to this expansive double disc collectionI hadn't heard even a whisper about Baruch, but I guess that's what makes Sub Rosa such an important label - rather than sit back and release the obvious they actually hunt for lesser heard gems, and as usual this re-issue has been treated with the utmost care and attention to detail. An important collection of devastatingly gorgeous music - highly recommended.
