Notes and Editorial Reviews

Highly lauded within the classical music world, Arvo Pärt has forged a singular path through the genre. The BERLINER MASSE was commissioned in 1990 for the Ninetieth Deutsche Katholikentag in Berlin, and finally came to fruition in 1997. Drawing on some haunting strings and choral arrangements, the work is extremely moving. Also included here is SUMMA, which Pärt conceived in 1977, and MAGNIFICAT, from 1989. They are beautifully performed by the Elora Festival Singers and Orchestra, under the watchful eye of conductor Noel Edison.
