2001 rerecording of this stunning classical work from the early 80s, originally released by legendary ECM records. A masterpiece of deeply contemplative, minimal modern classical music.
Double LP gatefold.
We here present the work of Anthony Pitts and Tonus Peregrinus, being Pärt’s passion cantata from 1982, winner of the Cannes Classical Award.
Comprised mostly of hypnotic tintinnabuli, which has become a signature of Pärt’s oeuvre , the work is a slow moving liturgical piece offering a vastness, solemnity and effective intimacy which allows the listener to contemplate the mysteries and suffering of the canonical text taken from the Gospel of John, chapters 18 and 19.
Released by The Ajna Offensive and Arcadia Phono.
