Notes & Reviews:

The latest release from the Estonian master Arvo Pärt comes just after his 80th birthday. His music is both shelter and quest, food for the one who doubts as well as the one who searches. Pärt doesn't preach. He lives a solitary existence and speaks very little. Take it or leave it! Love it or hate it! What a tour de force to combine simplicity and subtlety and reach solemnity and intensity. Combining the rich soul of modern classical composition with the timeless hum of spiritual music, Magnificent Magnificat ranks among Pärt's finest works.
