Review by sylvian August 21, 2009 (4 of 5 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:  
Arvo Pärt belongs amongst my most beloved composers from Baltic states. Hilliard ensembe is always a sort of guarantee of highly proffesional work. Check ECM label for others releases by Arvo Pärt!

This unique set combines composer's new and older material. Unlike with Johannes Passion by the same composer this one is the most quiet sacral music I have ever heard. 3 of the tracks contain accompannying organ which is also marvellously quietly cut.

I have been recently lending my ears very frequently to this disc especially during late evening hours.

The performance is above standard with Hilliers. Sadly there is no Symphony by Pärt on SA-CD or I would welcome other sacral works at least. Technically very nice - no flaws whatsoever.

Highly recommended to those who are into classical choral music.
