This double CD features 19 works by the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt. Some tracks have complete short works, like Für Alina, the Magnificat, Cantus in memoriam Benjamin Britten, a string setting of the Summa, The Beatitudes, two settings of the Fratres, Spiegel im Spiegel. Other tracks feature extracts of larger works, like movements from the 1st and 3rd Symphonies, the Berlin Mass, and two movements from the Passio. Most of Pärt's music is incredibly peaceful, beautiful, and spiritually captivating, even on first hearing. Other pieces however are atonal and take much more listening to get attuned to and I doubt if they would ever become accompaniments to spiritual meditation. But such pieces are in the minority here and there is so much on these CDs to spiritually uplift the listener. Because the tracks are taken from other Naxos CDs, there are various performers. Of the choral pieces though, I must mention the beautiful Elora Festival Singers from Toronto under the direction of their founder Noel Edison who perform on five tracks. There is great variety in the music here - instrumental, organ, strings, and choral to provide a most enjoyable selection. Well done Naxos for bringing these pieces together!
