The harmonies change almost imperceptibly, only noticeable after a long period of time: thus the idea of eternity.

The Hungarian composer compared Lux Aeterna to this image: " Upon the still surface of a body of water, we see the reflection of an image, and then ripples disturb the surface of the water, the image changes and disappears.
