Someone gave me a recording of the tefilos of Yom Kippur in a well known Yeshiva. The Baal tefila is no longer alive. The recording was made by a jew placing a modern digital recorder underneath the amud where the chazan stands before Yom Kippur. The recorder had a internal timer, it recorded from before kol nidrei to sometime after mariv, and again from before shacharis to the middle of neila, when the battery died. The chazan and all people in the room were unaware of the presence of the recorder. The recorder was owned by the Jew who placed it there. I was wondering what, if any, are the halachic issues Relevant here. Some people told me that it may be prohibited to listen to it.

    Did the recorder belong to the chazan or someone else? Was it set to record before yom kippur for the entire 25hrs or was it turned on on Yom Kippur? If it was turned on on Y.K. Was that done by a Jew or gentile? Some relevant issues you may want to clarify. – user6591 Sep 24 '17 at 18:25
