Hymns for the Hamburg Reform Temple service. Reform congregations created German-language hymnals on the pattern of the Protestant Gesangbuch (first: Jos. Joelson's Shirei Yeshurun, Frankfort (1816)). The Hamburg hymnal (1819, many editions) contained some melodies composed by well-known musicians like A. G. Methfessel and, later, the Jewish-born Ferdinand Hiller.
