She has chosen Schubert's setting of Psalm 92, composed to a Hebrew text and written at the request of and perhaps for a performance by Salomon Sulzer, the cantor at a new synagogue in Vienna. She's also chosen an excerpt from the unfinished opera Der Graf Von Gleichen, based on an exotic tale set in the Ottoman Empire, but addressing the serious issue of polygamy.
