Notes & Reviews:

In his vast and atmospheric Requiem, John Tavener draws on a range of religious traditions and influences to reflect upon his belief that true liberation and oneness with God can only be achieved through death. Uniting the traditional Roman Catholic Requiem Mass, Qu'ran and Sufi and Hindu texts, the result is an ethereal and powerful musical journey, which received a standing ovation at the premiere performance captured on this disc.
