The selection accompanying this slideshow is taken from Maurice Ravel's Kaddish, from Melodies Hebraiques. Kaddish was composed in 1914 for voice and piano, and orchestrated in 1918. It was widely disseminated in arrangments for violin, viola and cello, and has frequently been interpolated into the service in Reform synagogues.
