Format: Audio CD
Kanon Pokajanen is a work of rare clarity and immensity. For mixed choir, the 90 minute work spans its 2 cd’s like a glacier, the more you think its transparent the more frozen objects you find in there. This really is incredible music - Pärt’s trademark step motion and ‘tintinnabular’ techniques become even more stripped down in this piece, with some of the most basic unison passages tip-toeing around huge choruses and sheer walls of voice.
The Estonian Philharmonic are to be commended on this performance. The choir mirrors the character of the soloists, an amalgamation very rare indeed, and the recording is superb. This really cannot be recommended enough, I have listened to this piece probably hundreds of times and still feel like I’m dipping my toes in its waters for the first time.

I usually listen to rock, blues or jazz. I heard this on BBC R3 and couldn't get it out of my head. I saw Paul Hillier conduct it with the Estonian Philharmonic at the Sage on my birthday and went to heaven. Out of category, out of genre, out of this World. Buy it, love it, tell others.

This Album is in my opinion a must for any Classical Music lover. To review this album is a difficult thing to do. All I can say is that one must listen to this piece and just immerse yourself into another world.

Without trying to be to profound, it is almost like Arvo Part has been chosen as an instrument from somewhere else to deliver such beauty. The last track on this double CD is without doubt the most inspirational piece of music that I have ever listened to.

Fans of Philip Glass and Steve Reich will "Get" this. Thank you Arvo Part.

Pärt has written many wonderful pieces of music and he is a composer who will undoubtedly continue to grow in stature. The Kanon, however, will prove to be his finest hour. It is a work that moves through you and though very much a canon in musical structure, seems to change in subtle ways with each listen. It is a very subtle piece and that is its great strength. One can lose oneself in the detail; the complex layers and harmonies, the exquisite use of a drone against the light soprano. Or one can stand back and consume the whole piece as an immense, sombre meditation.
The piece is in many way similar to some of the Sybil*la chants, though even more bare and at times very dark. It is not an easy piece to come to, it demands something of the listener. The rewards, however are great and listening to it one knows that Pärt really can stand amongst the very best having created a work of such sombre beauty.
A true work of art.
