Penned in 1943, Hannah Szenes's moving poem "A Walk to Caesarea," is a beautiful and timeless prayer. This setting was composed with the author in mind; a brave, determined fiercely intelligent and independent young woman. Szenes, having left Budapest for Palestine in 1939, joined a rescue mission in 1943 as a British trained paratrooper in order to rescue Hungarian Jews from being deported to the death camps by the Germans. She was captured, tortured and executed by firing squad late in 1944.
