Need answer fast!

I'm looking for an audio file of the Rosh Hashanah Kiddush, in the RH melody. So far everything I've found uses the Hagim melody. My usual go-to site, virtualcantor.org, doesn't have RH Kiddush at all.

    I've ben using virtual cantor the past week for studying Shacharit. I am unaware that there actually IS a special tune for Rosh Hashannah Kiddush, which may explain why you haven't found one. I've been to numerous shuls, and every chazzan (almost all of them "pros" - e.g. one trained in Vienna with some of the great chazzanim of early 20th century) and all used the standard Chagim tune with perhaps the ending of Melech al kol ha'aretz in the Rosh Hashannah tune. I'm curious if someone else can find something unique for RH. Of course, if you find for YK, I'd really be curious :-)

Here is an audio file of Rosh HaShanah kiddush, in a melody specific to Rosh HaShanah (which is based on the Yamim Nora'im Torah leynen melody):

It is part of a collection of audio files demonstrating nusach, sung by Rabbi Haskel Lookstein. This is the index page:
