Tavener: Choral Ikons The Choir, James Whitbourn, conductor, sings music of Sir John Tavener (b. 1944), whose fame spread wide when his Song for Athene was sung during Princess Diana’s funeral in 1998. He writes,”I see music as a ‘window of sound’ on to the Divine World . . .” The DVD includes the virtual recreation of the interior of the Hagia Sophia, Justinian’s great 6th-century church.
