De profundis
Here is some of the most spiritually uplifting music of our generation, sung by that most virtuosic of choirs, Polyphony. Arvo Pärt (paralleled in England by John Tavener) has succeeded in capturing the attention of a broad public through his consummate ability to weave a sense of inevitable power into music of fundamental simplicity.

The impressive Berlin Mass which opens the disc was written in 1990, the Credo being a fascinating major-key reworking of the earlier minor-mode Summa; very much an expression of joy at the lifting of the Soviet embargo on ‘sacred’ music in Estonia. Annum per Annum is a monumental work for solo organ and is here performed on the organ of St Paul’s Cathedral: a thoroughly exhilarating experience. The disc ends with the masterpiece De profundis. This most powerful of texts draws from Pärt an inexorable momentum from a beginning almost out of nothing to a devastating climax.

‘Pärt’s music remains an object of unstinting wonder’ (BBC Music Magazine) ‘A landmark recording. Go and buy it’ (Choir & Organ)

‘Polyphony’s singing is immensely cultivated; bright, clear, immaculately phrased, and gorgeously balanced’ (American Record Guide)

‘Outstandingly good on each front: clarity, balance, intonation, timbre, dynamic and textural control and, perhaps most important of all, feeling’ (Classic CD)

‘Committed and de?nitive performances of this intense music’ (Organists’ Review)
