“From the Cradle to the Chuppe” is the title given a collection of Yiddish folk-songs compiled by Constance and Henry Gideon and published in two volumes by the Arthur P. Schmidt Company, Boston and New York.
The collection which is said to be the first exhaustive and complete work of its kind in America, covers a range of four classes of songs: Childhood, Meditations, Love Songs, Weddings and Festivals. It is arranged for voice and piano. The Yiddish text is given in simple phonetic transcriptions accompanied by an English translation.
Henry A. Gideon has been choir master and organist of the Temple Israel of Boston for the last fifteen years.
