This is a profound and beautiful CD. Tavener once again is subperb in brining contemporary choral works to a soulful conemplation of the depths of the Golgatha experience. There is great angst, unapologetic tension, and fantastic richness in this work!

AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE 2003 RAVEL: Piano Pieces Eric Himy Ivory - 72009 - 73:50 This is a very appealing interpretation of Ravel! American pianist Eric Himy seems to have captured the essence of the composer of Miroirs. In this collection he underlines Ravel's talents as a colorist and his skill with dynamics. 'Une Barque sur l'Ocean' evokes the tormented atmosphere shot with light of a Turner painting: whereas 'Alborada del Gracioso'is both vivacious and elegant perhaps more from suggestion ( 'Noctuelles' and 'Oiseaux Tristes'), meaning implicitly, while leaving space for the imagination. In Gaspard de la Nuit, Himy maintains the mystery with 'Ondine' and unleashes a wild storm in 'Scarbo'.The unavoidable Pavane for a Dead Princess allows us to appreciate the precision of his style. La Valse, in Himy's arrangement for solo piano, does not have the full sound we are used to in the version for two pianos. But the spirit of the piece is there, brilliant, precise, and ironic, with many little winks of the eye. These interpretations bring immediate pleasure, with a humane character that shines from beginning to end, though rather removed from the Mephistophelean and transcendent reading of Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli.

I have spend a lot money collecting early chanting music. But most of them are catholic style. this is the first time I came across the greek orthodox style. And I am falling in love with it. Even though John Tavener is a modern composer, but he manage to compose like the ancient time, which is really amazing. The greek orthodox chanting make you feel the simple and strong relation between man and God. I stop listening to other chanting music and play this CD over and over again..it is the music that flowing directly from the heaven. Nothing can compare to it, after you listen to it, you will put your gregorian chanting CDs back to the cd shelf, and you will throw the modern Gospel music to the trash can where it belongs. I bought other Tavener's CD, but still, this one is the best. Not to mention the best skywalker recordingstudio, the chanticleer's heavenly voice will make an evil man repent. I give my highst respect to John tavener, he have the talent that I would want to have at any price.
