CantorMoshe Koussevitzky - V'Lirusholayim Ircho

Moshe Koussevitzky was born on June 9th 1899 at Smargon in Vilna, Lithuania and came from a background of Chazanut. He was the oldest of the four brothers, with Jacob, Simcha and David and, as is well-known, they all went on to become famous Chazanim in their own right.
Moshe is regarded generally as the Chazan's Chazan. He was possessed of an outstanding, well-trained, tenor voice of extraordinary range and flexibility and an innate understanding of the art of Chazanut.
