‘Tavener's Two Hadiths is striking...the singers of Canty create a beautifully blended sound.' MusicWeb International

'Scottish Ensemble perform these remarkable pieces with great authority, conviction and beauty...extremely moving.' Gramophone

'All the works are spellbinding in Riu's readings.' American Guide

‘Diverting, well-played survey of contemporary brass music.' Classic CD

Tavener wrote the extraordinarily moving ...Depart in Peace... following the death of his father. Written for soprano, violin, tanpura and strings it features Eastern elements and a glittering setting of the Song of Simeon; Patricia Rozario and Clio Gould are outstanding soloists in this beautiful piece. 

Originally pronounced unplayable, Tavener's Trisagion was premiered by John Wallace in 1985 who recorded it with his own ensemble, The Wallace Collection. Containing Stravinskian flourishes whilst balancing fanfare-like passages with solemn chorales, the players more than meet the virtuosic challenges.

Written especially for them, Canty gave the world-premiere recording of Two Hadiths which explores the sonorities of the bray harp in meditative settings of the poetic sayings of the Prophet Mohammed.

The title work Ypakoë, a series of meditations on the death of Jesus, was specially written by Tavener for Elena Riu and originally premiered on her recording ‘Piano Icons For The 21st Century', which was a Gramophone ‘Critics' Choice': ‘my disc of 2000 is without hesitation Elena Riu's extraordinarily fine CD.'
