Validity of different Cantors
How do we decide if a source for a hymn is valid? Does it depend on the famousness of the cantor in the recording?
That's something that you can't just talk about lightly. You have to consider first how are you judging the hymn....are we talking about differences in a small number of hazzat, or different places to pause, or different syllables to stop at, or the actual text being chanted, or the pitch it's recorded in, or it's the loudness, or is it the constructing (tarkeeb)?!....all these are something to consider.
So if a hymn has a source can it be used normally?
I am saying it's not that easy to define.
I see:/. Thanks anyways
