Album information

Tavener Conducts Tavener charts Cappella Nova's professional and personal connection with the celebrated composer Sir John Tavener, conducted by his cousin Alan Tavener.

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.
