Noam Sheriff's work for Tenor and Baritone Soli, Boys' and Men's Choirs and large orchestra, Mechaye Hametim ('Resurrection of the Dead') has been given performances in Tel Aviv and Salzburg by the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra under their Music Director, Zubin Mehta.
Composed in 1985, the work is based on traditional Jewish themes and music from Eastern Europe and the Near East. The concert programme also included Schoenberg's Kol Nidre in G minor op.39, a reaction to the rise of anti-Semitic sentiment in the years preceding World War II, and Mahler's Kindertotenlieder.
