Notes and Editorial Reviews

"John Tavener is a master of sonic masonry, constructing vast cathedrals of both solemnity and exultation within the head and heart. Religious proclivity is not a prerequisite to uncovering the ecstasies in these scores, and the magnetism of each infuses even the most vexed of minds with hope and tranquility."
- Doyle Armbrust (Time Out Chicago)
