I saw info about the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's upcoming performances of Bernstein’s “Kaddish” Symphony and it made me curious about Kaddish-inspired music. I can't say that I know anything about the Kaddish, except that it is a prayer said at funerals. I thought this music by Ravel was very moving:

* If you're in the Baltimore area, you can hear conductor Marin Alsop talk about Bernstein's "Kaddish" Symphony on Sept 19th.
* The words to the Mourner's Kaddish from Judaism 101
*'s Kaddish Guide
