Album information

Scottish Ensemble performs a stunningly beautiful recording of remarkable pieces by John Tavener. Gramophone named this world premiere Tavener recording a 'Record of the Year'. You can see why...

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.
