Kaddish

May thy glory, O King of Kings, be exalted, O thou
who art to renew the world and resurrect the dead.
May thy reign, Adonaï, be proclaimed by us, the sons of Israel,
today, tomorrow, for ever. Let us all say: Amen.
May thy radiant name be loved, cherished, praised, glorified.
May it be blessed, sanctified, exalted, thy name which soars
above the heavens, above our praises, above our hymns,
above all our benisons. May merciful heaven grant us
tranquillity, peace, happiness. Ah! Let us all say:
Amen.

Composer

Joseph Maurice Ravel was a French composer, pianist and conductor.  In the 1920s and 1930s he was internationally regarded as France's greatest living composer. He was one of the first composers to acknowledge the potential of recording in making music accessible to a broad public, and in the 1920s several recordings of his work were made.
