Morning Star - the Music of Arvo Pärt

Vox Clamantis

Details

Grammy-award winning ensemble Vox Clamantis blends a seamless mix of medieval chant with the holy minimalist music by Arvo Pärt in this haunting yet exquisite performance.

Invoking the timeless beauty of age old vocal traditions of the Baltic, this acclaimed Estonian ensemble demonstrates the power of singing being so deeply embedded within their culture.

Known for their performances based on Gregorian chant and early polyphony mixed in with works by contemporary composers, this performance features the music Arvo Pärt released on the ECM record label, home to Gary Burton, Chick Corea, Steve Reich and John Cage.
