Listeners are often lost for words when they hear John Tavener’s The Protecting Veil. It’s so sincere, so warm, and so beautiful that it speaks to listeners of all faiths and none.

First, though, cellist Matthew Barley and the Orchestra journey to the centre of this musical icon. Through living programme notes, the musicians give their own personal reflections on the themes, music, emotions and feelings that this music inspires.
