After hearing today's sad news I felt compelled to write a review of this wonderful piece of music . The word 'genius' is bantered around all to freely today especially when describing musicians, John Tavener was a genius and this is a small piece of this man's body of work, if this was the only thing he ever produced it would of been enough. John was inspired by his religious beliefs and although I am not a religious man I can't help but be moved by his music .

I would highly recommend this CD for any classical music fans with a penchant for the cello/strings! The quality of the recording is fantastic, and this particular performance by Steven Isserlis is one of the best versions of The Protecting Veil that I've ever heard. The additional Britten pieces help to fill up the CD with some extra material and make it an even more worthwhile purchase. The full playback of the CD is in excess of 60mins, and will transport you into a place of calm & reflection. A really well thought out & put together collection of spine-tingling string music.

I bought this after watching the 2013 BBC documentary about Sir John Tavener. It was described in a letter to the cellist as "the only thing to comfort her going through cancer". I can understand this after listening to the piece - just so very beautiful and calming. I shall be buying more music by this composer.

This disc is amazing. An excellent performance of the Protecting Veil, itself a deeply moving revisiting of several of Tavener's choral themes. The whole is, however, let down by the inclusion of Britten's music.

A most beautiful ethereal recording, sending shivers down my spine, wonderful cello playing, with such understanding of what Tavener is trying to say in his music.
