News - Tavener: The Veil of the Temple re-release

Monday, January 13, 2014
'I regard The Veil of the Temple as the supreme achievement of my life and the most important work that I have ever composed.'

Sir John Tavener


Signum Records have re-released the landmark recording of Sir John Tavener’s The Veil of the Temple. This 2CD set captures the concert-version of this 8-hour work, composed to last through the night until dawn in the manner of the grand vigils of the Orthodox Church. Combining the psalms of a number of different religious, Tavener skilfully blends together a work that is truly all-encompassing in its scale and spiritual fervour.
