Summa
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Dating from the 1970s, Summa is one of Pärt’s first tintinnabulist works, emerging early on from his stylistic ground-zero. It is a setting of the Latin Mass Credo, but coming from a time when Pärt was still living in Soviet-era Estonia; its title conceals its religious nature. With its voice-pairings, upper and lower, of stepwise and triadic movement, it is a textbook display of Pärt’s newly established tintinnabulist principles—neutrally flowing, stripped back, quasi-medieval.
