Two Hymns To The Mother Of God
The Two Hymns were written in memory of the composer's mother. The first, A Hymn to the Mother of God , was originally composed for double choir, is a setting of a text from the Liturgy of St. Basil. It speaks of the almost cosmic power attributed to the Mother of God by the Orodox Church. The second, Hymn for the Dormition of the Mother of God , comes from the Vigil Service for the Dormition (or falling asleep) of the Mother of God. She invites the apostles to gather together from the ends of the earth to bury her body in Gethsemane, and asks her son to receive her spirit.
