Notes & Reviews:
Sir John Tavener's Lament for Jerusalem, described by the composer as a mystical love song, brings together Christian, Judaic, and Islamic texts. Lament for Jerusalem is heard in this recording in the composer's specially re-worked version for the Choir of London's groundbreaking visit to Jerusalem, Ramallah, and Bethlehem in December 2004.
