John Taverner's Children Of Men
26-Dec-2006 - Varèse Sarabande has released the score for Children Of Men, a film that envisages a world one generation from now that has fallen into anarchy on the heels of an infertility defect in the population. The world’s youngest citizen has just died at 18, and humankind is facing the likelihood of its own extinction. Set against a backdrop of London torn apart by violence and warring nationalistic sects, the film follows disillusioned bureaucrat Theo as he becomes an unlikely champion of Earth’s survival. The film’s grippingly powerful musical accompaniment includes original works by classical composer John Tavener along with pieces by Mahler, Handel and Penderecki. In addition to Tavener’s original works, this album also contains his compositions Eternity’s Sunrise, Song of An Angel, The Lamb and others.
