About this album

This is music that aspires to convey a sudden flash of insight that resonates through eternity.
THE GUARDIAN

Tavener has made something really fresh, new and timeless from apparently basic elements.
THE INDEPENDENT

If there was one thing I wanted to do, it would be to re-instate the sacred into music.
