This line up shows Peter Banks on guitar and vocals and Tony Kaye on keyboards, a year before they were replaced by Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman, forming what some still regard as the ‘classic’ Yes lineup — there have been many changes since.
Eclectic rock might be the better word for this style of music. Yes went on to be one of the very best exponents of this genre, in my opinion.
Who would have the time, the patience and the patronage, to build a new edifice to faith? Today's monstrosities arise to lesser gods, steel and glass tombs where no one lives, while shanty towns mass around in some claustrophobic hell, whose denizens fight and beg just to stay alive. Such juxtaposition is not new - only the extremes.

I knock on the door
No one will ever answer
but silence reigns in the sky
Connivance rules the dark world

Tchaikovsky, born today in 1840, remains one of my favourite composers, who embodied Russia and his times.
My particular favourite is his Serenade for Strings in C major from 1880, actually the first piece of music I ever heard on CD.
