The Kol Nidrei is the opening prayer of the Jewish service on the eve of the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur). It probably originated among the Ashkenazi Jews of mediaeval Ger. Tune (traditional) is not used by Sephardim. Ketèlbey (non‐Jewish composer), inserted whole motif into his Sanctuary of the Heart (1924).
