‘An exceedingly beautiful disc that I have no hesitation in making my record of the year.' Gramophone

‘The title track and a work of ethereal stillness, is played with breathtaking control by Clio Gould, whose part resides ecstatically at the most precipitous heights of the violin…the performance of this exotic and bewitchingly beautiful composition […Depart In Peace…] is mesmerising.' Hi-Fi Choice

‘Linn's fine recording of the 12 crack players of the Scottish Ensemble provides the best of both worlds, a successful hybrid that can project the raw energy of the Allegro molto, for instance, more effectively than the bigger forces.' BBC Music Magazine

‘A superb performance with outstanding playing.' Classic CD

 

Tavener wrote the extraordinarily moving ...Depart in Peace… following the death of his father. Written for soprano, violin, tampura 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. Clio Gould’s perfectly pitched and emotive violin playing takes centre stage in My Gaze is Ever upon You and Tears of the Angels. John Tavener, who passed away in 2013, was described as one of ‘the very best creative talents of his generation’ by The Times; these compositions are among his finest.
