It's inspired by two modal settings of a Greek Orthodox hymn dedicated to the Virgin Mary and may also be viewed in the context of Hieromonk Damascene’s book, Christ the Eternal Tao (2004), which examines the relationship between particular ideas of Lao Tzu and the words of Christ. The second section of the book is compiled of newly composed poetry (directly influencing my piece), which provides insight grounded in the Tao Te Ching and Christian Orthodoxy as practiced in contemporary China.
