Vaughan Williams and Tavener

Released on 24.09.2007

One word unites the works on this album, and that word is ‘ethereal’. The soundworld of English composer Sir John Tavener is often described as ‘ethereal’; possessing an other-worldly, spiritual quality that strikes deep into the soul. And Ralph Vaughan Williams’s aural portrait of that blithe little lark as it spirals up into the heavens is indeed an ethereal vision.
