(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 a totally spiritual concept - to attone the individual's (performer's or listener's) will to the divine will. Ypakoe is personal and its violation may permit sanctions, the purpose of which is to heal the listeners.
