Of his Symphony No 1, Tal has written as follows: "The thematic music is developed out of music originally conceived for the choreographic creation "Waters by the Babylon... In this work I have used an ancient Persian-Jewish Lamentation" of which the "ancient tune actually furnished the entire motive material for the entiere symphony." (Wikipedia)
