The "Az der Rebbe.." song was put together by a maskil as a parody. Once I saw the name of its originator; it's not so "traditional". Looks like he swiped some of a Schubert tune to lead it off.

Listen to cut #7 of Schubert: Sonatas Nos. D.845 & D894: Music: Franz Schubert,Radu Lupu
That’s why I find it especially ironic that it was used in an ad for tours to Lizhensk for the Rebbe Elimelech’s yahrtzeit.

This week, we bring you a special opportunity to learn about ZOHAR, a world fusion ensemble with an interesting Jewish twist. The Great Britain based group rarely tours the US, and is led by Erran Baron Cohen, brother of Sacha and composer of the Ali G and Borat soundtracks. Don't pass up a rare chance to bring this acclaimed ensemble to your community as they tour the US this July. Also, don't forget that the Lag B'Omer and post-Sfirah concert season are coming, and now's the time to plan 2007-2008 musical events.
