Info for Arvo Pärt: The Deer's Cry
“The Deer’s Cry”, featuring the composer’s vocal pieces performed by Vox Clamantis and conducted by Jaan-Eik Tulve.
Vox Clamantis choral group has become one of the most frequent and most renowned performers of Pärt’s music, and its intensive creative collaboration with the composer has lasted many years.
The new album mainly comprises of a cappella choral pieces written since 2000. Alongside better-known compositions such as “Da pacem Domine“ and the eponymous “The Deer’s Cry”, there are also many vocal pieces such as “Von Angesicht zu Angesicht“, “Sei gelobt, du Baum“ and “Veni Creator“, which have seldom been recorded previously. The album includes world premiere recording of “Habitare fratres in unum“ which was also premiered by Vox Clamantis.
The album also includes pieces from the 1990s – “And One of the Pharisees …“ and “Gebet nach dem Kanon“. Pärt’s 1970s work is represented by “Summa”, one of the first and best-loved examples of tintinnabuli. Compared to its many instrumental arrangements, its original version (an arrangement for four voices) is rarely recorded.
For Vox Clamantis, “The Deer’s Cry“ is already its second full-length album in co-operation with ECM. In the spring of 2012, the group released “Filia Sion”, which featured Gregorian chant and early polyphony. The group was also involved in the recording of Pärt’s Grammy award-winning album “Adam’s Lament“.
“The Deer’s Cry“ was recorded in the Church of the Transfiguration of Our Lord in Tallinn, in the autumn of 2013 and 2014. The album was engineered by Igor Kirkwood and Margo Kõlar, Helena Tulve was recording superviser, it was mastered by Manfred Eicher and Christoph Stickel, and produced by Manfred Eicher.
Arvo Pärt also participated in the recording process of many pieces.

Vox Clamantis is an Estonian ensemble which was formed in 1996. It brings together singers, composers, instrumentalists and choir masters who share an interest in Gregorian chant as the basis of all European art music. The group often sings this repertoire, but also performs contemporary music. Many Estonian composers, including Arvo Pärt, Erkki_Sven Tüür and Helena Tulve, have written pieces for them. Their interpretation of medieval music is never purely historical; while always remaining true to the spirit of this repertoire, the ensem ble tries to engage in a dialogue with contemporary music; even programmes consisting entirely of medieval music are contemporary in their selection of pieces. The ensemble has worked with numerous musicians of international standing, such as the organists Jean Boyer, Werner Jacob, Jon Laukvik, the Catalan soprano Arianna Savall, the French pianists Brigitte Engerer and Jean_Claude Pennetier, The Cello Octet Amsterdam, the early music group Hortus Musicus, the con temporary ensemble NYYD Ensemble and the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir. Their artistic director and choirmaster is Jaan_Eik Tulve.
