Description

"Listening to Arvo Pärt's newest composition, Litany, is like walking alone in a vast, empty space. A deserted monastery, perhaps. History and stillness hang thick as incense in the air. Light from arched windows patterns the floor. Columns soar heavenward. These images are all in the imagination. But such is the power of Pärt's religious music that it inevitably sends listeners on an inward journey back in time." David Stabler, The Oregonian, 28.6.1994

"As the 24th and last prayer ebbed into silence, the audience seemed loath to disturb the atmosphere the performers had created. After several moments of silence, however, they stood as one to give the soloists, chorus, orchestra, conductor and composer a well deserved and lengthy ovation." Scott Skelton, The Register-Guard, 1.7.1994
