This download-only track, Now fatal change, for countertenor and violin, draws upon music from the most intimate moments of Tarik's orchestral work Chaâbi (available on his album A Celestial Map of the Sky), and is set to the same text by Nahum Tate that Purcell used for Tell me, some pitying angel.
All purchases of the O'Regan album A Celestial Map of the Sky will include a free download code for this track in the accompanying booklet.
