Abraham Zevi Idelsohn — , a professor at Hebrew University, began cataloging all known Jewish music and teaching classes in musical composition; one of his students was a promising cantorial student, Moshe Nathanson, who with the rest of his class was presented by the professor with a 19th-century, slow, melodious, chant niggun or nigun and assigned to add rhythm and words to fashion a modern Hebrew song.
There are competing claims regarding Hava Nagila's composer, with both Idelsohn and Nathanson being suggested. The niggun he presented has been attributed to the Sadigurer Chasidim, who lived in what is now Ukraine, which uses the Phrygian dominant scale common in music of Transylvania. The commonly used text was probably refined by Idelsohn. In , the song was one of the first songs designed to unite the early Yishuv [Jewish enterprise] that arose after the British victory in Palestine during World War I and the Balfour Declaration, declaring a national Jewish homeland in the lands newly liberated from Turkey by the Allies and entrusted to Britain under the Treaty of Versailles.

Idelsohn was born in Feliksberg, Latvia and trained as a cantor. He worked briefly in both Europe and South Africa before emigrating to Palestine in and establishing a school of Jewish music there in During his time in Jerusalem, he noted a great diversity of musical traditions among the Jews living in the region.
Idelsohn examined these traditional melodies and found recurring motifs and progressions that were not found in any other national music. He found that these motifs fell into three distinct tonal centers, which corresponded to the Dorian, Phrygian, and Lydian modes of the ancient Greeks. Each of these modes elicited a distinct psycho-emotional response. The Dorian Mode was used for texts of an elevated and inspired nature; the Phrygian for sentimental texts, with their very human outbreaks of feeling, both of joy and grief; and the Lydian was used in composing music for the texts of lamenting and confessions of sins.
Idelsohn further categorized and defined these motives as ones that either prepared a musical phrase, began it, or concluded it. Backstop chipped, paper toning, otherwise Very Good Condition.

Aug 24, Matt rated it liked it Shelves: I started this collection of fairy tales, legends, folk songs, and rhymes by Wilhelm Busch for two reasons: First it was new to me that the author, who is famous for his early comic strips like Max und Moritz , also wrote fairy tales and I had to check them out; secondly because I wanted to find out if and how far I am able to understand texts written in Low German.
Low German is actually a collection of several dialects that are very different in parts, and was spoken across the Northern parts I started this collection of fairy tales, legends, folk songs, and rhymes by Wilhelm Busch for two reasons: Low German is actually a collection of several dialects that are very different in parts, and was spoken across the Northern parts of Germany. Actually it's still spoken there, although the number of active speakers is declining. I'm one to two generations too young to speak it. It turns out this book sort of failed its promises: Wilhelm Busch didn't actually wrote the pieces in the book, but merely collected them around the year , and he didn't want his work to be published because he feared his collection wouldn't stand a chance against the one from the Grimm brothers.
After his death a nephew of Busch, O. I suppose he meant linguists. Also, of the 41 fairy tales only eight are actually written in Low German [see sample below].
