Some people write off Hovhaness, but he was definitely ahead of his time - with his own brand of spiritual, serenity inducing music. Equally fascinating was his globe trotting research into various music traditions. There is a good Alan Hovhaness biography at the composer's website, which is: http://www.hovhaness.com/Hovhaness.html
