Erich Wolfgang Korngold composed only two genuinely religious works: the Passover Psalm for soprano, mixed choir, organ and orchestra op. 30 and Prayer for tenor, female choir, harp and organ op. 32. Both compositions were written in 1941 in exile in California. The compositions had been commissioned by Jacob Nerdling, who led the Society for Jewish Culture in Los Angeles. For thePassover Psalm, Nerd personally created prayers from the Passover Haggadah.
