Tavener: Choral Music (CD Review - The Financial Times, 2004)

Peace, calm, the eternal, the spiritual: Tavener’s music offers balm to listeners harried by the pressures of the modern world. Nowhere does his focus on simplicity come across better than in his smaller choral works. This disc brings together a collection of the most recent: Butterfly Dreams with its fleeting images, the radiant Schuon Hymnen and the hypnotic Shûnya. In Polyphony’s flawless performances, the music aspires to beauty incarnate.
