Description: 

Arnold Schoenberg's religious works serve as chapters in his own spiritual biography. the late twelve tone musicla style is apparent in his piece "Jacob's ladder". In his piece "kol Nidre" his return to traditional tonality and his choice of the topic reveal his deep personal interest in the Jew who left his religion and aspires to return to it.
