Provides insight into the philosophy and spiritual world behind the music of one of the leading present-day composers. This book will find a sympathetic readership among modern music-lovers and anyone who senses the gap between contemporary culture and humanity's deepest spiritual values.
"There are few serious composers who strike so resonant a chord with so wide a public as John Tavener. [His] works venerate his devout . . . beliefs; yet like all great sacred music, his compositions speak to people of other faiths (or lack thereof)."
--Bradley Bambarger, "Billboard"
