John Tavener: Angels CD by Winchester Cathedral Choir
Sir John Tavener’s choral works on this CD are dated between 1985 and 2011. Compositions are beautiful, soothing and deep, many of them with simple, yet atmospheric harmonies. ‘Song for Athene’ and ‘The Lamb’ are just two of the highlights in this collection of some of Tavener’s most enduring — and endearing — choral music. Performed by Winchester Cathedral Choir conducted by Andrew Lumsden with George Castle on organ.
