We're not allowed to listen to music during the Three Weeks, Nine Days, or Tisha B'Av, but are you permitted to listen to nusach like chazzanus or niggunim?

  • Nusach, Chazzonus, and Niggunim are all different, with different halachos. – Ploni Jul 14 '17 at 6:51

    I listened to weekday Shacharit Nusach this morning for about 6 minutes along with some rabbis and laypeople, and no one there seemed to have a problem with it. – Double AA Jul 14 '17 at 14:29
  • I think that there are 2 aspects that would probably allow this. The prohibition of music during the 3 weeks is identical to those for the sefirah period, as far as I know. I assume that all the music that you mentioned is "a Cappella", in which case, it's probably allowable. (There are numerous MY questions on this topic from what I recall; of course verify your case with your rav.) The other aspect, is that if you're listening to this for a job, such as you need to listen to nusach tapes for an upcoming Rosh Hashanna job, then, there's probably greater leniency to let you do this. – DanF Jul 14 '17 at 15:15
  • FWIW, you have a redundancy. The "Three Weeks" includes the other 2 occasions that you listed. – DanF Jul 14 '17 at 15:16
