Music of Great Depth, Beautifully Performed
on 1 December 2008
This is a lovely collection of Tavener's choral music, perfect for introducing a newcomer to his style and leaving him or her wanting more. It includes the `Song for Athene', made famous by the Diana, Princess of Wales funeral, but it offers many more pieces, such as `The Lamb', and `Svyati', which show an even broader aspect of Tavener's soothing, peaceful style. This is music with great depth, suitable for accompanying meditation, for listening in the dark, or for reaching towards an understanding of life. The choir of St John's College, Cambridge and Christopher Robinson achieve a sound that perfectly suits the music.
