Notes & Reviews:

The John Tavener Collection is a tribute to one of the most influential contemporary British composers, and featuring new recordings of his most popular choral works including 'Songs for Athene' (notably performed at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales) and 'The Lamb'. Tavener is renowned for his serenely beautiful music of spiritual contemplation, inspired by music of the Orthodox Church which he joined in 1977.
