Abstract/Description: This collection consists of one "cantor's book," a bound volume of musical notations in both pencil and ink presumably used by Cantor Koussevitzsky to lead congregations in prayer. Prayer lyrics, instructions, and notes are written in both English and Hebrew.There are many blank pages, and some pages appear to have been inserted from other sources. An inscription at the front of the volume reads "Cantor J. Kucewicki, London, Dalston Synagogue, 19 (28/7) 35." A stamp on the final page reads "Rosh Pina Congregation, 123 Matheson Avenue, Winnipeg 4, Manitoba."
