In addition, this collection has:    
  • Ode to the Temple of Sound   
  • Suite 1 for Band.   

All recordings come from radio broadcasts, out of print LPs, and from private collections.  To the best of my knowledge, none of these recordings has been commercially released in digital form.

This collection is so staggering I felt compelled to come up with a booklet that was worthy of it. This booklet

Is more than 60 pages long.  (Note-- the link is only for the booklet.  You need to go to the downloads section to access the recordings).  The Booklet has a full listing of information about each recording, as well as bibliographical information, detailed descriptions of nearly all of the symphonies in this collection, analysis of his compositional style, and also many quotes and insights from Hovhaness himself.  Material in the booklet comes from the Hovhaness web site, a conference paper on his works for band, interviews with Hovhaness, and excerpts from Chung Park's PhD thesis about Hovhannes.  (Park conducted the 2009 Visions of the East CD with an all-Hovhaness program.)

And for what it's worth, I can't stop listening to the 5th section of the Vishnu Symphony.
