This setting was found posthumously among Bernstein’s papers in a folder marked “1989,” but the musical atmosphere suggests his style in Dybbuk (1974). Only ten bars long, this rumination on the mystery of creation is, by extension, a tone painting of artistic creativity, suggesting something formed out of nothingness.
Sung in Hebrew
And God said “Let there be light,” and there was light.
