Description
Contemporary English composer John Tavener (1944–2013) was best known for his lush and luminescent choral masterpieces, such as The Protecting Veil, The Lamb, Funeral Ikos, and The Veil of the Temple—all featured in this collection. Performed at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales in 1997, it was Song for Athene that secured him an international reputation ("This is spine-chilling music which listeners will return to often," wrote BBC Music). Essential Tavener also includes A Christmas Round, Elizabeth full of grace, and the CD premiere of Mother of God, here I stand, taken from the soundtrack of the Alfonso Cuarón film Children of Men.

"He could bring an audience to a deep silence, which is a very rare gift. He believed that music was for everybody and was a prayer."—John Rutter
