R.I.P. John Tavener, and thank you!

Not only is it Tavener whom I love, but this choir is a remarkable example of all the necessary principles of great choral ensemble production. I look forward to hearing much more from this choir.

Hallelujah. Music to erase the cobwebs and fill the heart.

El Guapo, yes. His composition "Song for Athene" was used as the recessional anthem at the Princess's funeral. I have performed that work, and it is absolutely beautiful. His use of a drone in all four parts combined with the dissonance and subsequent major triumph mirroring the text is just heavenly

no I did not......wil l someone help me out

I think of the world in mysterium. The brain erases marks made by religious scars. Tavener's conversion to a world of artificial faith, limits the creative potentiate of libido. Mahler's eighth inspired by Eros, is a prime example of art beyond an ordinary threshold. As long as church bells don't ring all day, the sight and sound is worth hearing.

I enjoy this composer...b u t . . . h e can be jarringly dissonant. Preview his songs before you buy! David Meyer
