Notes & Reviews:

The Choir sings Sir John Tavener's hauntingly beautiful unaccompanied choral music in a stunning virtual reality restoration of the ancient Hagia Sopia church in Constantinople. In February, 2002, Sir John Tavener wrote: "If I were asked why I write music, I would answer that I wish to transmit and make accessible to others an inner vision. I hope that my music resembles ikons 'in sound', insofar as I see music as a 'window of sound' on to the Divine World..."
