8:00 Composer of the Week

JOHN TAVENER (1944-2013)

The Veil of the Temple - Patricia Rozario (sop), Choir of the Temple Church, Holst Singers/Stephen Layton (Sony 82876 55154)

"I regard The Veil of the Temple as the supreme achievement of my life and the most important work that I have ever composed. By the act of writing The Veil I understood that no single religion could be exclusive. The Veil has become light - there is no longer any veil. This tearing away of the Veil shows that all religions are in the transcendent way inwardly united beneath their outward form."
