Notes & Reviews:

Featuring the world premiere recording of the "Three Holy Sonnets," the Chamber Choir of Southern Iceland reunites with the music of John Tavener! Back in 2004 the group performed many of these pieces at a concert in Iceland, with the piece "Schoun Hymnen" specially commissioned by the choir. This stunning choral disc brings together new recordings of established favorites with the world premiere of the "Three Holy Sonnets."

Gramophone
Individual works of a prescient spiritual strength and memorable beauty.

BBC Music Magazine
The main points of interest here are the premiere recording of 'Three Holy Sonnets' ... admired by Stravinsky, and premiered ... in 1964, they still sound impressive, without needing to make allowances for the youth of the composer.
