Notes & Reviews:

Sir John Tavener has been a unique, controversial and ever evolving figure on the contemporary music scene since the late sixties. These CDs encompass a cross-section of his music, including the world permiere of 'Prayer of the Heart', written for and sung by Bjork. Combined with a comprehensive essay, this portrait paints the definitive picture of one of the most charismatic and important composers working today.
