Programme Note
John Tavener In Memory (2001)
In Memory was written in memory of Glen Schaefer, and all the departed souls of America. The words come from the Orthodox Funeral Service and from a text by Mother Thekla.

The music should be sung with a shining solemnity, and should ideally be performed in a church or other building with reverberant acoustics. The solo bass sections refer to St Hermann of Alaska and should be performed in the manner of a Byzantine pasltis. St Hermann is the pre-eminent Orthodox saint of the Americas. May he pray to Christ-God, to have mercy on us all.
