4.0 out of 5 stars Intense musical experience 29 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
I discovered this music via a programme advert on BBC television- most people will have seen it. It is a wonderful piece which builds to gripping emotional heights- a rare thing indeed. The second CD presents choral music recorded in Winchester cathedral.I was disappointed with the rather distant sound- probably swamped by the cathedral acoustic. I think the sound engineer could have improved things in this case and enabled a five star rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 7 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard the Protecting Veil as a ballet. I have loved it ever since. This is a very good performance and is combined with some other good examples of Tavener's work.
I recommend it. And if you don't know Tavener this is a fine place to start.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tavener: The Protecting Veil, etc. 13 Jan 2014
By MarcF
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
To me, the saddest loss of last year (2013) was the death of John Tavener. His music opened doors in my childhood mind that gave me an interest not only in modern music, but in a wider range of music (of all genres) than I had listened to at the tender age of 13. This album is a wonderful selection. The Protecting Veil is just beautiful - contemplative and melancholy. The last sleep of the Virgin too. I haven't listened as much to the choral stuff on the second disc, but it is also wonderful. It is a great collection representative of Tavener's mature work.

This would have the full 'five stars' if the sleeve notes were a little more detailed. There was a considerable delay in receiving the CD. Ultimately, this didn't matter because of the auto-rip feature - I was able to listen to the music immediately on purchase. However, I was looking forward to reading some sleeve notes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, Heavenly Music 16 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was taken with John Tavener when I heard him speaking on Radio Four just before he died.
His music is very spiritual and it lifts the soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Penny Drops 29 May 2010
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I have to say I haven't got Tavener until now. I have been put off by the Classic FM easy listening tag. However this varied compilation gives a much better overview of what he is about - simple rather than bland.
