“A command performance... her voice rings true with sadness, joy and love of life…”

-- SF Jewish Bulletin

“The extraordinary voice of Roslyn Barak in her CD “The Jewish Soul” which I can listen to daily insofar as it transmits the warmth of humanity and the beauty of song...”

-- Le Figaro blog

Barak was trained as a professional opera singer before she felt a calling to give her musical gift to the Lord. And she is now probably the #1 female Cantor (Jewish religious singer) in the world, and one of the best, period.

An Awesome Cantor

By Morton Gold, Music Critic

 

 I recently received a CD entitled "The Jewish Soul" featuring soprano Roslyn Barak, cantor of The Congregation Emanu-El of San Franisco. While one could take issue with the title, one cannot dispute the multi-faceted talents of Cantor Barak. She possesses a fine lyric soprano which is well trained and she demonstrates a high order of musicianship and artistry. Her "piano" (soft) tones in the high register is the nearest thing to a male mezzo voice I have heard. Just awesome!

... Cantor Barak demonstrates her versatility and artistry in every selection... the overwhelming content of this CD presents to the world a major contemporary talent to the kavod of her congregation and the glory of our G-d.
