    The nigun sounds very smooth. The points and and sharp edges of the souls outcry have been filed and sanded down to a smooth and rounded finish

    I’ll have to agree with 1 and 2. It’s Reb Aharon’s niggun not Reb sholom’s

    It may be that Reb Aharon put the words כי הנה כחומר to the nigun, but it may be one of those nigunim which was נתברר from outside sources. I can tell you that I was told by an elderly Hungarian Jew (he was in his early 80’s at the time) that this tune is an old Hungarian Lullaby.

    I understand where you are coming from (especially if you have the זכות to be personally invested). I did not ח”ו intend any העדר הכבוד and certainly know that all the Charitonov מחברים were exceptional composers and profound Chassidim. I merely raised a muse in conversation (on a forum meant to stimulate friendly conversation) about this one particular nigun. I stated a fact: -I myself heard from an old timer a similar tune and the man himself described it as an old lullaby. The language was Hungarian (not Russian, thus diminishing the chance that it was lifted by the local… Read more »

    This niggun, although beautiful and hartzig, does sound a bit different than the average Charitonow style niggun. Just saying.

    Beautiful!

    I would love to know more background on this nigun. When was it taught? When was it brought to Lubavitch? Which Rebbe taught it?

    In Sefer Hanigunim, this nigun is #66 and is attributed to R.Sholom Charitonow. What is the source for the other opinions?
