Review

What might sound like a complete works is actually a selection of Pärt's music drawn from five previously released recordings that focus a little more on his choral compositions. This set includes: Passio (8.555860); Fratres (8.553750); Orchestral Works (8.554591); Berliner Messe (8.557299); and Music for Unaccompanied Choir (8.570239). Also included is a sampler bonus disc (entitled Sonic Rebellion) that features the music of a variety of modern composers, including Pärt. -- Baker & Taylor, CD Hotlist, Rick Anderson, June 2008

Format: Audio CD
This is a great collection of some of the works of Arvo Pärt, but pay attention! I bought this off the shelf at Borders, but didn't realize that it was a box set from Naxos, and that I already owned two of the cds within. It would have been cheaper to purchase the other discs separately. Oh well.

The quality of recordings is fantastic, and at a great value typical to the Naxos label. I highly recommend this set, but buyer be warned to check your collection beforehand!

Arvo Part is undoubtedly one of the most important composer of sacred music of the XX century. These works (most vocals) are very original and interesting, his technique "tintinnabula" create many new musical spaces for vocal pieces. Excellent, from all point of view. They are very remarkable the "magnificat", the "tribute to Caesar" and so many others.
