Program Note:
Ki Koleich Arev is a setting of the original Hebrew of Chapter 2, verse 14, from the Song of Songs. It was composed for the naming ceremony of Betty Sarah Kubovy-Weiss on 1/3/2004, and it is dedicated to her. I was inspired to choose this text by Marvin H. Pope’s translation of these verses in the Anchor Bible:

“…My dove in the cliff crannies,
In the covert steep,
Show me your form,
Let me hear your voice;
For your voice is pleasant,
Your form fair….”
