About

I regard The Veil of the Temple as the supreme achievement of my life and the most important work that I have ever composed.” - Sir John Tavener

Signum Records are proud to re-release the landmark recording of Sir John Tavener’s 'The Veil of the Temple'. This 2CD set captures the concert-version of this 8-hour work, composed to last through the night until dawn in the manner of the grand vigils of the Orthodox Church. Combining the psalms of a number of different religious, Tavener skilfully blends together a work that is truly all-encompassing in its scale and spiritual fervour.

Originally released on RCA, 2003.
