    Where is the "Nativity of the Mother of God" on this recording? I think it should follow the first section. At any rate, this is, perhaps Tavener's finest hour. I feel inspired and serene when I listen to this piece. Also, there's a lot of interesting stuff going on musically. I know Song of Athene and others are more popular and celebrated, but The Protecting Veil is wonderful and profound work, I think.
