  5. Jeptha's Daughter's Lament

    The Giladite general, Jeptha, ostracized from his community because his mother was supposedly a prostitute, makes a vow that he will sacrifice the first thing he sees if he can win the battle for the Giladites against the Ammonites.

  7. Even in Heaven

    Piano/acoustic guitar, cello/strings:Marc Poelhuber Flute solo: Helga Shleeh. Keyoards: Steve Carter

    My good friend, the artist and poet Susan Felix, (Z”L) was married to her beloved Mort for 54 years. After
    he passed, their daughter Lisa Smartt began to transcribe love poems that Lisa felt she was receiving from Mort to her mother and gathered them all in her book Veil: Poems from Across the Threshold. The poems inspired me to compose this song.

  8. Kol D'Mama (The Still small Voice)

    I wrote this when I was undergoing radiation for breast cancer. I am not by nature a still person. Singing this in my mind during the treatment helped me to be still. The phrase comes from the story of the prophet Elijah who is fleeing from the wrath of Queen Jezebel. He is dejected and looking for God. But God was not fto be found in earthquakes, fire, windstorms or thunder. God is in our own stillness, our own silence.

    Bass: Steve Carter Viola: Pemi Paull..., Percussion: Marquinho Brasil

    Piano: Stephen Glass Flutes: David Weigens
