Words fail me, to even utter them after hearing this! I have heard Greek Orthodox music in various Churches that are very, very emotive (given the right atmosphere). However, the ethereal atmospheres created by this music, can 'elevate' you in the depths of yourself, given a bit of time to get used to the surrealistic tonalities.

This CD is an exquisite selection of beautifully performed and recorded compositions by John Tavener.
His music is inspiring. Choral music as well as instrumental features, with a particularly glorious use of the cello, played by Steven Isserlis for whom it was actually written.
Fantastic value for money....................just buy it!

What a sad loss to the world was John Tavener. There is much to love in his music, though there are some 'screeches' I'd rather edit out.

This collection is excellent and I am happy to have his music played by different people and here a range of interpretations.

I wanted to be introduced to Tavener's work ,and to be honest I think I would be better listening to a complete work rather than these selected pieces.However the reproduction was fine,clear and crisp.

This CD is just beautiful. If you need time on your own to reflect on life just put your feet up and listen to this.

Excellent recording - but I prefer the version of 'Song for Athene' which uses the organ too- - that's on 'The John Taverner Collection' - it's more atmospheric.

Underrated composer and died far too early. His song for Athena at Diana's funeral is just mind boggling and moving.

I recently heard a Tavener piece of music and it really gripped me, particularly the slight dis-chords he introduces. Probably not an album to listen to in one go as it can get a little repetitive. However haunting choral music which is very emotional. Good album
