MUSIC: Chanukah Melodies

My cousin Honey (Honoré) Singer recorded the narration for these two sides of a Chanukah 78rpm in 1951. I’d like to think it shot up straight to the Top 10 of the Yiddishe market of the time. She passed away in her sleep on the morning of December 23, 2013 after a long illness.
1. Blessing of the Candles / Hanerot Hallalu (.mp3).
2. Rock of Ages / Maoz Tzur Al Hanissim (.mp3).

Thank you to Bradford Kinney (aka Ghosts of Energy) for letting me use his 78rpm turntable to digitize these two sides.
