Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
With the same steady, syllabic declamation as The woman with the alabaster box, Tribute to Caesar was written as a companion piece—also setting narrative from St Matthew’s Gospel—to mark the 350th anniversary of the Karlstad Diocese in Sweden. Of particular note is the way Pärt fractures the vocal line, picking out single notes for different voice parts to contribute to the broader texture; a kind of hocketing or pointillism that the composer makes his own.
