(Music Sales America). Work for Solo Piano commissioned for the City of London Festival in 1999. Quoting John Tavener: Ypakoe, in Greek refers to the Yapoe of Easter "Why seek ye among the dead, as though He were mortal man?." Ypakoe for solo piano is a meditation on both the Passion and Resurrection of Christ.

Ypakoe is personal and its violation may permit sanctions, the purpose of which is to heal the listeners.
