The Baltimore Niggun - One of the Best for Lecha Dodi

Some people know this niggun as "The Baltimore Niggun." Others know it more specifically as "Rabbi Goldberger's Niggun." Either way, it's a beautiful niggun.
CLICK HERE to listen to or download this clip from this Niggun in mp3 format, which is often used for Lecha Dodi. (UPDATE 9/4/08 1:09 PM- Link fixed)

You can order one or more copies of the CD from Rabbi Goldberger's website HERE.

Thanks to Reb Nossi Gross of Zemer Orchestras of Baltimore for making this clip accessible to me. Yasher koach!

Very much so, Rav Goldberger is a Hornsteipler Hassid

His Rebbe was R' Shlomo Twerski ztz"l of Denver, Father of R' Mottie Twerski Hornesteipler Rebbe of Flatbush

I know it says "a comment", but I have two:

1- Since your posting this, the first link was taken down. Probably to help sales of the CD.

2- I believe it is preferred to sing a hartziger niggun (a slow soulful, "from the heart tune") for the first part, and not switch to an upbeat tune until Lo Seivoshi. The meaning of Miqdash Melekh, Hisnaari and His'ore'ri are all longing for the ge'ulah.

Micha, I actually put up the link to the clip. I fixed the link though so try it again. It should be working now. Not sure why that happened. Kol tuv!
