 Not my thing February 2, 2016 By Morris Reagan (Madison, MS) See All My Reviews "All I can say about this or for that matter most of Tavener's music is that it is not my cup of tea. Tavener himself described his music as AUSTERE, which nearly all of it certainly is. This is not meant to be a denigration of Tavener's art. For those who derive something from his work this may be absolutely wonderful. But I prefer uplifting joyous music like one hears in the late masses of Haydn and his marvelous oratorios The Seasons and The Creation. I like the great works of Mahler, even though his music is some of the darkest there is because Mahler always ends a symphony or a song cycle on a note of optimism, hope, or at least acceptance and resolution."
