Programme Note
John Tavener Come and do Your will in me (1997)
'I do not wish, I do not desire to live long. I wish to live with You. It is You, who are long life, vital, and without end … with him in sleep, and in waking, filling his life with sweetness… not to check our plans, and hopes, and our life, but to confirm, strengthen, and bless them.' (from the Hymn of Entry by Archimandrite Vasileios)

The music must be sung with enormous intensity and sonority, casting all into the fire of God.
