This edition is the choral score of Arvo Pärt’s “Vater unser” (“Our Father”) – a piece he composed for boy soprano and piano in celebration of the 60th jubilee of Pope Benedict XVI's priesthood in 2011.
On 4 July 2011 Arvo Pärt performed his “Vater unser” (“Our Father”) for Pope Benedict XVI at a ceremony in the Vatican celebrating the 60th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood. Pärt also presented the Pope with a copy of the manuscript, which is dedicated to him.
To honour the anniversary, over 60 artists from around the world have been invited to contribute to a new exhibition of artworks. Amongst the artists are the composers Arvo Pärt, Ennio Morricone and James MacMillan.
To commemorate this historical occasion, Universal Edition has released a new edition of Pärt’s “Vater unser”, see UE35300. It includes a CD recording of the composer performing the work together with the boy soprano Heldur Harry Põlda, who performed with Pärt at the Vatican.
This edition is the choral score with piano accompaniment.
