A Possible Daily Thought -- Pan Cogito Belatedly Notes A Leading British Critic's Consideration Of A Leading British Sacred Composer
Jonathan Harvey - composer
'Harvey's music - ecstatic, inspired, filled now with contemplative rapture, then suddenly with exuberant, joyful dance, and always beautiful - has long stirred me. Among contemporary composers there is none except Stockhausen who can so regularly "with sweetness, through mine ear, dissolve me into extasies, and bring all Heav'n before mine eyes".'
