One of today's most celebrated composers, Sir John Tavener has earned a huge following worldwide for the combination of spiritual mysticism, reverent yearning and passion that suffuses all of his music. This work originated as a commission for Jorja Fleezanis, concertmistress of the Minnesota Orchestra, on the occasion of the orchestra's Centennial. This magnificent work expresses a moving interplay between the forces of the orchestra, depicting aspects of the Divine Spirit, and the violin, representing the "Divine Eros" - "our longing for God and His longing for us." The music speaks deeply to a universal longing for love, peace and transcendence that unites all faiths. Prof. Johnson's recording amazingly captures the enveloping sound of the massed orchestra, choir and soloists in the magnificent acoustics of the Cathedral of Saint Paul, MN, creating a transcendent musical and sonic experience.

Reviews
"A recording like this is no mere entertainment... The music is immediately seductive, but it nevertheless requires several auditions in order to unlock all of its beauty... This is a powerful work, from which emanates the scent of immateriality." - Reine Lessard, Ultra High Fidelity
