The highly talented musician Salomon Sulzer was already cantor in Hohenems, Vorarlberg, at the age of sixteen. From there he was summoned by Isaak Noah Mannheimer to Vienna in 1826. Sulzer not only composed synagogue music but also put to music poems by Goethe and songs from the 1848 revolution. His baritone tenor was so impressive that the City Temple also attracted non-Jewish music lovers, including Franz Liszt. Sulzer’s friend Franz Schubert put the 92nd Psalm to music for the community.
