This symphony confirmed my existence. It is my most favorite and profound music. I first heard Kaddish in 1964, on my car radio, while driving to college class. Enamored so by the music, I remained listening until it finished, making me late to class. The next day, I bought the vinyl record (pre tape/CD/MP3 era). Played it …studied it. I was stunned that someone had composed in music my philosophy of human’s relationship with the Force, and vice-versa. Since, I’ve purchased Kaddish many times, presented it to those I cherish; this most recent time, to my GrandNiece. I do not practice a religion. I do not believe in the Abrahamic God or any god. I do believe there is a Creator, something that caused the universe. But, I do not know It. Further, I believe that I, a cognisance being, am evolving the universe. That I contribute to existence’s ongoing formative process. That I am the butterfly, winging the solar wind...
I bought the disc. Adequate quality recording. The electronic version that was offered along with the disc version is incomplete. It only has the first four tracks. I would give it a higher rating except for the incomplete mp3 version of the album.
If you are a Bernstein fan, this is quintessential. Of course Bernstein is "original" and not for everyone. I gifted this album to a dear friend after a death in her family. She found the Kaddish particularly moving. I sang Chichester Psalms in collage (MANY) years ago. It was challenging, but also fascinating. Some sections were illuminating.
