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 & 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 & 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.

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.

Excellent work and played as Tavener wrote it - for the ages.

It is a welcome work in any home.
