World Premiere performance of Sir John Tavener’s epic work written for the new Millennium, recorded in St Paul’s Cathedral, London, in January 2000. Richard Hickox conducts the City of London Sinfonia with Patricia Rozario, Michael Chance and Stephen Richardson, in a work which came to Tavener in a vision. The composer makes full use of the remarkable acoustic of St Paul’s, presented here in breathtaking 5.1 Surround Sound.

THE EYE OF THE HEART - Sir John Tavener talks about his beliefs and music
Introduction to the work by Stephanie Hughes
12 page illustrated booklet in English, French and German

‘Stephen Richardson’s bass seemed to rise from the ground under our feet, while Patricia Rozario’s high flying ululations hung in the air above us, their sumptuous decorations extended towards infinity by that long, long echo.’
The Mail on Sunday

‘By any standards, the closing minutes made an overwhelming impression…A thunderous climax echoed round the great dome of St Paul’s...This is a great audio-visual spectacle...’
The Times

‘Although one can never fully capture the atmosphere of a live performance, this DVD…brings you as close as you can get. Indeed for a piece of music…that largely consists of a series of grand effects perhaps it is even in some way enhanced on DVD. The vast architecture and acoustics of St Paul’s Cathedral are exploited to the full in a colourful kind of son et lumiére which is well captured by intelligent camera work and very clear surround sound. There are some wonderful aural effects; for example, the thundering climax of the final ‘Cosmic Dance of the Resurrection’, with full organ and peal of Easter bells, is quite overwhelming… This is a well presented ‘collector’s edition’, providing everything possible to increase the listener’s appreciation of the piece. Every format is well catered for with 5.1 surround sound available in DTS and Dolby Digital. Cleverly the disc is also double-sided with PAL and NTSC formats on opposite sides giving it worldwide compatibility.’
