Cantor Baruch Erblich
Cantor Baruch Erblich is a native of Israel, a seventh-generation Sabra and a descendant of a long line of renowned Cantors. After emigrating to England, he studied at the world-famous Gateshead Yeshiva.
As a child, he moved his audiences to tears with his sweet soprano voice. After training with the noted musician and choirmaster, Zalman Rivlin, z”l, his voice burgeoned into a gloriously vibrant tenor, resounding with a vitality capable of executing the finest and most detailed coloratura unsurpassed by many celebrated contemporary Cantors.
Under the watchful and critical eye of his father, the distinguished Cantor Reb Moshe Leib Erblich, z”l, master and scion of Jewish liturgy, he developed the expressions, nuances, and shadings so necessary for the interpretation of fine cantorials. In fact, it is often said of Cantor Erblich’s presentation of the classic “Rozo D’Shabbos,” that Pinchik, z”l, himself would have come to hear him.
At the age of nineteen, Cantor Erblich began his professional career chanting the High Holiday services at the New Lots Talmud Torah in New York, a venue that hosted such talent as Yossele Rosenblatt, z”l, Mordechai Hershman, z”l, and other equally eminent masters.
In addition to appearing on television, Chazan Baruch Erblich has inspired audiences in Europe, South America,Israel, Great Britain, Canada and theUnited States. For those who have had the pleasure of listening to Cantor Erblich, it is unnecessary to describe his talent and eclectic knowledge of classical liturgical Nusach.
For those who have yet to hear him, prepare yourselves for a memorable spiritual experience. You certainly will agree that, as a Cantor, he truly ranks among the great legendary Chazonim of days gone by . . . and that, as a person, his traits of character and personal nobility, make him ideal as a representative to carry our prayers to the Seat of Glory in Heaven.
