I've heard some of his Kubla Khan before.  It sounded fine, but I never pursued his music.

I really enjoyed sampling the dreamily atmospheric Kubla Khan.
Thanks for posting this.

(From WAYLTN thread)
Am enjoying wallowing in the atmosphere of this work (narrated by Ben Kingsley - of 'Sir Ben Kingsley' as he insists on being known as). Admirers of Alan Hovhaness might well enjoy this work.
