(1898 - 1964)

Born in Kiev into a family of cantorial traditions, Leib Glant served as a synagogue cantor in Kiev, studied there with Glière, and then served in Moldova, where he was a pupil of Abraham Berkowitsch, an expert on cantorial recitatives. In 1926 he moved to the United States, where he won a reputation among Ashkenazi congregations, and in 1954 settled in Israel, teaching at the Tel-Aviv Institute for Religious Jewish Music and endeavouring to establish a reformed cantorial tradition of a more optimistic tinge. He was one of the great cantors, distinguished for his performances and recordings.
