Song for Athene is a mixture of lines from Shakespeare's Hamlet and words from the Orthodox liturgy, both set to monodic chant. The composer also makes use of a continuous "ison," or drone. Surely the most notable performance to date was that at the Westminster Abbey funeral services for Diana, Princess of Wales, in 1997; it was sung as her coffin was carried from the nave. Appears On.

2 - John Tavener: Song for Athene. A song in memory of a recently deceased family friend (Athene Hariades) with Alleluias interspersed with five text lines from the Orthodox Funeral Service and two ( and from Shakespeare's Hamlet Like the Tavener piece, these motets look backward as to their traditional Latin texts, but are framed in more modern harmonic style. This stunning program led by Atlanta Symphony Chorus' new director, Norman Mackenzie verifies that the chorus remains in excellent hands with Robert Shaw's successor. The chamber chorus comprised of approximately 40 voices sings with the trademark diction, blend, accuracy and warm tone that were the hallmark of Shaw's choruses.

Song for Athene" (also known as "Alleluia. May Flights of Angels Sing Thee to Thy Rest") is a musical composition by British composer John Tavener with lyrics by Mother Thekla, an Orthodox nun, which is intended to be sung a cappella by a four-part (soprano, alto, tenor and bass) choir.
