Death of an Israeli composer

Yehezkel Braun, a leading composer of choral and orchestral music, has died at the age of 92.

He was a product of the German cultural hothouse that was Breslau (now Wroclaw) and immersed himself unfashionably in Gregorian chant, achieving music of translucent beauty.

Some of his songs achieved near-pop status on national radio.
