The Passing of Mother Thekla.  Eternal Memory!

"A beautiful, Russian-born Cambridge graduate who co-founded the monastery near Whitby and latterly lived there in seclusion as the abbess, she furnished the words for some of Tavener’s most important religious works, and was the spiritual driving force behind one of his most popular pieces, The Protecting Veil (1987).

Memory eternal.  :'(
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
