Music comes not from the human voice nor from any musical instrument known to man. It comes from a special place that we visit unwittingly and catch the fragments as we march forward.

Sir John Tavener produced some of the most beautiful and deeply moving music you could ever hope to hear. To the musical establishment he was an outsider but his music spoke in his defence.

When asked about his music he replied,

“I hope that my music resembles icons in sound, insofar as I see music as a window of sound on to the divine world.”

Once again I have enlisted the help of the wonderful Kara to express my thoughts for the Tavener
