Re: Max Bruch. Who wrote the music for Kol Nidre was NOT Jewish #general

I think you may have got some garbled information...
Max Bruch composed his Adagio on 2 Hebrew Melodies for Cello and Orchestra with Harp based  Kol Nidrei.  No way he wrote the music "for" Kol Nidrei.  The tune was sung in Ashkenazi communities centuries before Max Bruch was born.

For those who'd like to hear it, here's a link to Bruch's composition as played by Mischa Maisky
