The great British composer Benjamin Britten – mentioned the younger composer John Tavener approvingly as representing a new generation of composer that was rejecting the then-current avant-garde’s rejection of the past.

Tavener’s quest for eternal value led him to convert to Russian Orthodoxy inand much of his music since then has reflected its musical and rituals and those of the Byzantine Funwral from which it sprang. His Funeral Ikos, for six-part vocal ensemble, uses Byzantine church modes and Renaissance polyphony as well as other imitative forms such as canons to create reflection, meditation, and a sense of stillness.


The melody is chantlike, ending with a many-voiced chordal statement. The text consists of the Greek Church’s funeral sentences, translated into English by Isabel Hapgood. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript.
