When Aaron Kula comes across music for a Jewish song written perhaps more than 100 years ago and missing one or more pages, he doesn’t discard it but rather composes the missing sections. Kula, director of music collections and performance at Florida Atlantic University Libraries in Boca Raton, said he creates about 25 to 30 musical compositions each year. Although some are pieces in which he has had to fill in missing sections, most are compositions Kula wrote having only the song’s melody and no accompaniment.
