Hear works of two prolific composers with distinctive paths to the sacred through choral music. The Estonian-born composer Arvo Pärt set Te Deum as a warm, serene, and ethereal musical panorama above the mystical drone of a wind harp. In contrast, the emerging 22-year-old Handel unveiled a virtuosic, kinetic, and ceremonious masterpiece in Dixit Dominus, announcing his brilliance to the world.
