Joseph Schmidt (1904 – 1942) was one of the greatest singers of the last century. His story is also among the saddest. In my opinion, in addition to his vocal beauty he possessed the most complete technique of any tenor I’ve ever heard.  I’ve written about him before and you can easily find these posts. Below is a radio program devoted to him on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. Highly recommended.

Also here is the recording of Adonai Hu Ha-Elohim , mentioned in the broadcast.
