Notes & Reviews:

Despite the mystic beauty of his music, John Tavener's place in Western music is a controversial one, yet part of the attraction of his music must surely arise from its symbolic nature, a reflection of his deeply held Orthodox faith. This collection covers a wide range of Tavener's celebrated choral output, including his immediately popular setting of William Blake's 'The Lamb' and the luminously spiritual 'Ikon of Light.'
