Seven Magnificat-Antiphons
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Composed in 1988 and revised in 1991, written for the RIAS Chamber Choir in Berlin (Pärt’s city of residence since 1982), these antiphons, each endowed with a very particular personality by Pärt, are assigned in the liturgy to the seven days leading up to Christmas Eve.
