Arvo Pärt’s unique setting of Christ’s Passion according to St. John is, quite simply, one of the most remarkable and transcendent artistic creations of the late 20th century – it is a work in which Pärt’s unique musical voice is heard so clearly and so eloquently re-telling one of the greatest stories ever told.
