Lux aeterna / Свете тихий (2018), composed for eight-voice SSAATTBB choir with organ accompaniment, is a work of ecumenical character. It was composed soon after the death of my father – Vyacheslav Mikhailovich Harkavyy (1940-2018) – using two texts: the Latin “Lux aeterna” (from the Roman Catholic Requiem Mass) and the Church Slavonic “Свете тихий” (from the Byzantine-rite All-Night Vigil). Why were these texts, rather than others, chosen?
