A piyyuṭ, by Eleazar Ḳalir (Zunz, "Literaturgesch." p. 21), chanted by the ḥazzan during the Musaf service on the days of New-Year and Atonement, according to the northern ritual; but omitted by many German congregations. The only music recognized as traditional is an eighteenth-century air, of distinct inferiority to the other inherited melodies of the Penitential season, but none the less firmly established in the tradition of many congregations, and prized for its quaintness.
