A Cappella Music

May one listen to A cappella music?

The widespread custom even amongst G-d fearing Jews is to permit listening to A cappella[1] music.[2] However there are Poskim[3] that are stringent to prohibit listening to music even of such nature.


[1] Music that is not accompanied by instruments of any sort and is merely vocal.

[2] Sheivet Halevi 8/127

[3] Sheivet Halevi 8/127 [ in his personal opinion]; Az Nidbaru 8/58; Tzitz Eliezer 15/33
