"This release with Peter Dijkstra has much to commend it ... a very fine set of performances of some of Arvo Pärt’s best choral music. There are some stunning sounds on this recording and it can take a justifiable place in the evolution of these works as their recorded history unfolds."
- MusicWeb International

This album shines the spotlight on Estonian composer Arvo Pärt. Released in 2015 to commemorate Pärt's 80th birthday in September, the four sacred works on this programme date from 1984, 1990 and 1997 and display the composer's own tintinnabulation style of composition (from the Latin word for the "ringing of bells"). In his Te Deum, Pärt deliberately evades the traditionally powerful and festive sound of such precursors as Charpentier, Bruckner and Verdi. The Münchner Rundfunkorchester under Peter Dijkstra is joined by the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks on this recording, the two ensembles frequently performing together in a concert series which regularly includes sacred music from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
