Informant biographical notes

Florentine lawyer, son-in-law to rabbi Fernando Belgrado, he extensively studied florentine minhag and chazanut under Belgrado, acted very often as a shaliach tzibbur both at the Florence Tempio Maggiore and at the Tempio Italiano in rechov Hillel in Jerusalem when he moved to Israel in the 2010s. He inherited most of Belgrado's original recordings and added to the collection other family recordings and his personal addenda based on his recollections of his study. He taught extensively to younger generations in Florence.

Notes on recording

Ventura includes this psalm to the set of "mizmorim di motzei Shabbat", together with "hodinu lekha" and "mikhtam ledavid". As Ventura explains at the beginning of this recording, these three psalms, sung before arvit lemotzei Shabbat, are read by various congregants alternating verse for verse (the first two) and by a single person (this one). Actually, this psalm is sung not immediately after the other two but after "amar rabbi Eleazar" and qaddish derabbanan (Umberto Sciunnach, סדור כמנהג ק“ק פירנצה יע“א, Morasha, 2005 pp. 244.246)
