The repertoire of Miracles is focused on church music of the present and past time. It includes music by the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, the Israeli composer Boaz Avni and mediaeval vocal music meet in a sound image which works timelessly, eternally, open. This succession of music – regarding the time of its composition they are a few centuries apart – reveals a tight contact of various aesthetic criteria, but it also leads to a confrontation between them. Profound theological roots in the
sources of the texts provide a solution, thus enabling an experience of an upwardly spiralling union of the soul and the embodied human voice. Music reflects a passionate, human striving to create a bridge for the soul’s ascent from earth to heaven.
