Notes & Reviews:

This specially priced set brings together three previously released recordings of music by Estonian composer Arvo Pärt as performed by Paul Hillier leading Theatre of Voices and the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir. Included are the albums De Profundis, Da pacem and Creator Spiritus.

The Independent, 2nd January 2016
The quality throughout is peerless, Hillier evincing Part's location of the sublime in simplicity, whether it's the single-line texts of pieces like "The Deer's Cry" or soprano Elsa Torp's exquisite delivery "My Heart's in the Highlands.
