This CD set, primarily devoted to the music of John Tavener, features choral music and works for string quartet. On the first CD, David Hill leads the Winchester Cathedral Choir, a choir of men and boys, in performances of remarkably focused intensity. The title of Tavener's The Hidden Treasure refers to paradise, and the music for the most part has a shimmering, unearthly tranquility, occasionally punctuated by eruptions of anguished anxiety. The Chilingirian Quartet gives all the pieces atmospheric and luminous performances that sound both chaste and sensuous.

So I put on John Tavener’s The Last Sleep of the Virgin and The Hidden Treasure played by the Chilingirian Quartet. I reserve it for night and winter. This morning I arose to the news that John Tavener died today at the age of 69. I like all kinds of music, as long as it is beautiful. John Kenneth Tavener was born on 28 January 1944 in Wembley. He was a direct descendant of the 16th-century composer John Taverner (with an extra r ). Tavener’s early work was clearly influenced by Igor Stravinsky and Olivier Messiaen, modernists who also composed Christian sacred music of great beauty.
