Part One of John Taverners: Fall and Ressurection

It charts Creation up to The Fall of Eden

What I love most about this...and I tell you now, I hate most of John Taverner because his music is largely based on disonence and horrible harmonic discordance...but what I love best about this piece is from 11.30-12.30 You hear a Horn like Trumpet over the top of the din, something I think he is using to refer to Angelic Proclaimations, since it occures again at the Incarnation, in this first instance to signify the war cry against the Heavenly Rebellion. Its an outstanding touch
