I love all of Elsie Bennett's arrangements for accordion in the volume entitled "Hebrew and Jewish Songs and Dances - Volume One," published by Pietro Deiro in NYC. I have not been able to find a copy of Volume Two, and it appears these are long out of print. Henry Lefkowitch of Metro Music Company and Harry Coopersmith of the Jewish Education Committee of New York assisted Elsie in the selection of these marvelous compositions. Esther Youlous and Esther Golbert helped to edit the text, according to the Publishers. Elsie's arrangements are the best I have found for their accessibility and ease of play for many students of the accordion. This particular volume contains many well-loved traditional hymns, folk songs, popular tunes and folk dances. My friend Jerry Sleger helped to tune this vintage Hohner and partially restore the instrument with new wax and leathers. I find that vintage instruments possess the acoustic sounds I am looking for in music of this variety, far more than modern instruments of recent manufacture. And there is always the unique satisfaction gained by holding in your hands a marvelously put-together instrument which allows the music to blossom and sing according to the spirit of the composition.
