Even in the movements, he is uniquely used other traditional Hebrew prayer texts for his creation. He also wrote music for the poems about the Israeli-Hungarian poetess Hanna Szenes, who died a heroic death in 1944 at the age of 23,which were written by the Hungarian poet Ernő Szép, who also has Jewish origin and suffered a troubled fate.
