- This work is an orchestration of one of the movements of The Great Happiness Suite originally conceived for synthesizer. See Music for Keyboard Instruments.
- This suite would be suitable as a ballet score. The titles of the movements are: I. Prologue II. Day of Mourning III. Festival of Joy IV. Day of Repose V. Processional to the Almo and Epilogue
- The title is taken from the journal of the same name by the writer and Trappist monk Thomas Merton (1915-1968). It requires a narrator who reads passages from the journal during the course of the piece. The central section, which is the composer’s plainsong setting of parts of the Mass for a men’s choir, may be omitted.
- The text for the work is a poem by the American writer Wallace Stevens (1879-1956).
