description: Wolpe fled the Nazi regime in Germany in 1933 and lived briefly in Jewish Palestine before coming to the United States. Wolpe’s Jewish compositions are much more conservative in style than most of his other works. This setting of Psalm 122 has a clear tonal center with varying textures and lovely lyrical lines.
