Benzion Moskovits (1907-1968), Jeweler, was since 1939, for 25 years, chazzan in the Lekstraatsjoel (interior and exterior and today) in Amsterdam. He was granted the Chower-title at his 25th jubilee in 1964. He was also Mohel.
The recordings named Track1-15 come from a family CD which I was allowed to copy. The rest came from various sources.

Recordings chazzanut (not Dutch) 1950th
The next first four recordings belong together, taken from a record (cover
and label) with chazzan Moskovits on one side and a German chazzan
(Estrongo Nachama) on the other side.
In the 1950th there used to be a radio broadcast on one of the national channels (probably AVRO) about Pesach. There would be a speaker, a chazzan and a boy saying ma nishtana. These were live recordings, which created quite some stress, especially with the boys. Track nr 12 is the live recording from 1951, where chazzan Moskovitz and his son Moshe (1947) at the age of 4 performed. Probably the chazzan sung track 11 & track 13. Another live Pesach broadcast, which is most probably older, was made by chazzan Hans Bloemendal & David (Loulou) Sondervan (1943). The speech of mr J. van Dijk got lost (recording collection fam Sondervan).
