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

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

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

Very Smooth

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

Gives me the chills
