1. I really like John Tavener's music, and have sung some of it.

He claimed to be a descendent of the English composer John Taverner (1490–1545), whose music I have also sung. Tavener's stuff is more difficult than Taverner's; once of his pieces is in both Greek and Old Church Slavonic, which was quite a challenge... great stuff, though.

2. I know there's no 'r' there. I'll edit.

This phone may have done that to me. 😏 Some of the ridiculous auto suggestions. Ai-yi-yi.😣 Unless I did have a 'tavern' 🍺 on my mind. 😝

Moving right along, what pieces did you sing in Greek and Old Slavonic might I ask?

We did communicate at a Greek Orthodox community for 15 yrs. and sang all the services. Of course, the pieces were especially done for a full choir and not chanting. I'm Slavic heritage and have sung Church Slavonic in another community, but most likely not as Tavener wrote.

3. I think it was a Magnificat.

This was some years ago, but I recall that we did it at a Great Paschal Vespers service (Episcopal church). I was able to locate this bit in the bowels of my computer: Chestnéshuyu kheruvím I slavneshu bez sravnéniya seraphím, Bez istléniya Bóga slóva rozhdshoyu, Súshuyu Bogorótsu Tyá veli cháyem.
