The long-awaited recording of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies' iconoclastic opera based on the life of 16th-century composer John Taverner, recorded by BBC Radio 3 in 1996.

"No single work in Davies's now-voluminous ­output has greater significance in his composing career ... his score is an extraordinary ­labyrinth of transformation." The Guardian

"This is seminal. I don't see how anyone with even the smallest interest in music as a living, breathing art and not as mere museum culture could fail to be seriously interested in this release ... a twentieth-century operatic masterpiece" International Record Review

"One simply can’t imagine Taverner being done better" Opera News
