Discography of sound recordings of Jewish musical folklore held by the Vernadsky National Library of Ukraine. Collected between 1912 and 1947 in Jewish areas of Ukraine and Belarus, the first recordings were made on ethnographic expeditions initiated by S. An-sky, Julius Engel, and Zinovii Kisselhof under the auspices of the Jewish Historical-Ethnographic Society in Petersburg and the Societies of Jewish Music in Moscow and Petersburg. After World War I the collection was further expanded with material collected by Zinovii Kisselhof between 1922 and 1928. After 1929, Moiseĭ Beregovskiĭ and other Jewish folklorists of the Ethnographic section of the Institute of Jewish Culture of AUAS (NAS) continued collecting until the Institute was abolished in 1949.
