While Thomas was writing the material for this album, his angelic grandmother Estelle died. Just weeks later his niece was born, who took the same name. As a dedication to both of them, Thomas chose Debussy's "The Sunken Cathedral", which so vividly evoked his memory of Memere Estelle's funeral. From the organ loft at the funeral, Thomas played the the traditional French hymn "Beau Ciel". A re-harmonization of the melody from "Beau Ciel" is what ends this piece, and the record. The text of the hymn includes the words “The world, it's possesions, it's pleasures, have nothing worthy of envy when you call me to my heavenly home”
