John Tavener

John Tavener

John Tavener, who passed away in 2013, was one of the best known and popular composers of the twentieth century. He was described as 'among the very best creative talents of his generation' by The Times.
profile & recordings >>

4 stars'There are numerous premiere recordings here, and...of course, favourites such as The Lamb, but also a delightful range of compositions showing Tavener in more varied light.' The Scotsman

'...with a clutch of Christmas pieces Tavener conducts Tavener is a must-have for a Christmas present...absolutely terrific.' Classics Unwrapped

 

Tavener wrote some of the twentieth century's most beautiful choral music; works such as The Whale and Song for Athene, which was sung at the funeral of Princess Diana, ensured he remained one of the most popular contemporary composers until his death in 2013. Including works from across the choir's twenty five year collaboration, this recording is bookended with choruses from the first piece Tavener ever wrote for Cappella Nova, Resurrection.

It also features nine premiere recordings including A Buddhist Miniature, commissioned to celebrate Cappella Nova's thirtieth anniversary in 2012, A Cradle Song and O that we were there! A brand new commission in memory of Tavener from his pupil and friend Ivan Moody, O isplendour, also receives its premiere here.

Ikon of the Nativity and Tavener's mesmerising and atmospheric Christmas hymn, The Lamb, with its beautiful simplicity and lush harmonies, lend a timely seasonal feel to the programme.

'All this can be very challenging to sing, and Cappella Nova not only manage to get the notes, but surmount them with lyrical grace...'
more >>

Gramophone
'Cappella Nova's comparatively small forces come up rich and gloriously misty round the edges, while still achieving enough clarity to pull off the precision-work of The Lamb and Two Hadiths.'
