This is a very polished recording, confidently performed and sumptuously produced. It is presented as a celebration of Pärt’s music and an exploration of his compositional techniques, notably his use of tintinnabuli and the dramatic effect of silence. Other reviewers might give it an additional star, but for me several of the tracks failed to convey a sense of spirituality, which I found surprising in a choir that leads worship on a weekly basis in the Church of the Transfiguration, Orleans, Massachusetts.
