Seven Magnificat-Antiphons

composer
1988/91; composed for the RIAS Chamber Choir, Berlin
author of text

 
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.

from notes by Meurig Bowen © 1998

Écrites en 1988 pour le RIAS Kammerchor de Berlin (ville où Pärt réside depuis 1982) et révisées en 1991, ces antiennes—que le compositeur dota chacune d’une personnalité bien particulière—sont assignées dans la liturgie aux sept jours conduisant à la veille de Noël.
