In addition, Joshua R. Jacobson shares his unique system of notation and supplies extensive examples of musical notation. Errata Producing a book as expansive and detailed as Chanting the Hebrew Bible was a big undertaking, and author Joshua Jacobson and JPS are very proud of this remarkable book. We feel sure that it will be the most important reference in its field for years to come.
