The deeply spiritual and timeless music of Arvo Pärt (b. 1935) has touched many listeners in a profound way during the last few decades. Today he is among the most frequently performed living composers.
The works on this recording span a period of nearly 25 years, from 1988 to 2012, and include some of Pärt’s finest works in vocal writing, including the three-movement Triodion and the 7-movement Sieben Magnificat-Antiphonen. The dominant stylistic feature of these works is his famous tintinnabuli style which he adopted after distancing himself from his early style that adopted neo-classicism, serialism and polystylism.

"You'll be hard-pushed to find a disc of Pärt choral music more enjoyable than this".
