Lionel Wolberger, then a Wesleyan graduate student in ethnomusicology, visited a large number of Conservative congregations and took extensive notes on the structure of their Sabbath service by hand, as recording was not allowed. Though very informal in structure, these reports represent unique fieldwork data in Jewish music studies.
