John Tavener 1944-2013

The great John Tavener has died today. A tremendous loss for the musical world. His music was filled with innocence and mystery, a rare and wonderful thing in our modern, cynical times. My own writing was deeply influenced by the spacious, deeply authentic sound worlds that he created; I will forever be in his debt.

Here is “The Lamb”, probably his most famous work, performed flawlessly here by Tenebrae and Nigel Short.
