  1. I think you'll find it recorded on an old Pirchei record of about 50 years ago. Not a Boyaner nugun by any means!!

    1. The Original niggun was composed by Reb Pinya Chazzan of Boyan. Pirchei London played a part of the niggun on their record.

    2. Not Pirchei London but on the old Pirchei Agudah records.

  2. Perfect example of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"!!!
    Original version is waaaay better than this.

  3. Commenter #1, Boyan was קונה this nigun בשינוי as it is only slightly similar (read inferior) to the Pirchei version.
