Post by: dhibbard on September 11, 2016, 03:31:55 pm

The German record label, ECM, has released a new album of Arvo Pärt’s music – “The Deer’s Cry” features the composer’s vocal pieces performed by Estonian vocal ensemble Vox Clamantis and conducted by Jaan-Eik Tulve.

The new album mainly comprises cappella choral pieces written since 2000. Alongside better-known compositions, such as “Da pacem Domine” and the eponymous “The Deer’s Cry”, there are also many vocal pieces, such as “Von Angesicht zu Angesicht”, “Sei gelobt, du Baum” and “Veni Creator”, which have seldom been recorded previously. The album includes world premiere recording of “Habitare fratres in unum” that was premiered by Vox Clamantis.
