Most Lubavitcher songs are not sung in the so-called cantorial style. They are based mainly on emotion of the heart and soul-expression. The Chassidim would sing when absorbed in prayer or during Chassidic gatherings for soul-searching.

There are exceptional instances when Chabad melodies are sung in cantorial style. The prayer Haneirot Halolu is one such instance. This melody was sung in the yeshiva Tomchei T'mimim of Lubavitch (Russia) more than a half-century ago and is popular even today in the Lubavitcher schools in every corner of the globe. The interlude played by the orchestra in the middle of the melody is an integral part of the melody.
