Rites are a double album recorded by Jan Garbarek in 1998. It contains new (for 1998) music of this extremely prolific musician and new recordings of some compositions from his own past. Also included is a song called The Moon Over Mtatsminda, neither composed nor performed by Jan but very dear to his heart. Really beautiful music that deserves to be heard.
