Arvo Part may have broken avant-garde ground in 1960 Estonia, but it is his embrace of a new approach - his 'tintinnabulation' - which has grabbed the attention of the Western music world. There is, perhaps, no better example than his Berlinger Messe, written for the 1990 German Catholic Day, and originally for four solo voices and organ. Glowing reviews and critique have followed the Messe since, and Part revisited the work in 2002, pitting the small vocal forces against a string orchestra. Universal Edition presents new editions of the revised work in study score, organ/vocal score, and choral score.
