Description
Made in the church of All Hallows Gospel Oak, this mesmerizing, 2005 recording of John Tavener's "mystical love song" includes Christian, Judaic, and Islamic texts, sung in Greek and English. This 2002 work posits Jerusalem as a symbol of the celestial synthesis of the Cosmos and the longing of humankind for God. Complete texts are provided.

"Gentle, powerful music of serene beauty."Classical CD Review

"One of the most tautly conceived of Tavener's essays in spiritual minimalism. It consists of seven cycles, each beginning with a quotation from Psalm 137, 'By the Waters of Babylon', and each following a similar layout with an instrumental texture, solos for counter-tenor and soprano, and a final choral lament. What is specially impressive is the juxtaposition of vocal forces of varying sizes, with [Jeremy] Summerly drawing incandescent singing from his choir."Penguin Guide
