Music during the Sefira

Rabbi Eliezer S. Weisz

16 Iyyar 5763
Question
Is it permitted to listen to recorded music during Sfira? (I understand that there are differing opinions on this subject; my interest is how rabbis of the "nationalist" camp hold.) Thanks!
Answer
Listening to recorded music is not permitted for 33 days - each according to his custom. One may listen to songs sung without instruments. At a Se'udat mitzvah music is permitted if the Se'udah is a Simcha Shel Mitzvah.
