Like many ofGubaidulina was worried

Gubaidulina was worried that her piece would never be performed by Kremer, who instead chose to stay in the West. Like many of her other pieces, Offertorium contains religious elements.

After the theme's demise the central section is a free rhapsody. After the third variation, the original theme is hard to make out. The final section is a slow string chorale that resembles a Russian Orthodox hymn. In fact, Gubaidulina was unofficially criticized by Tikhon Khrennikov for her heavy use of religion as inspiration.
