About the work:
Confessional is based on the chant sung in Greek Orthodox churches on the eve of Palm Sunday, ‘Ton Nymphona Sou Vlepo…’ (‘I behold your bridal chamber my Lord, and I wear not the proper vestments to enter’). The chant is stated twice in its entirety at the outset by the cello and reappears in various guises throughout the composition.
