Music: Codex Las Hulegas, Arvo Pärt
Being more than a century apart, their sharing of common aesthetic values is amazing. At the same time, they are in constant opposition as seen in Pärt's vocal drama Yearning of a Deer.
The medieval songs of the Western and Eastern churches, the early polyphony of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism, weightless instrumental music by Pärt − all these form an opus which creates new states. It can be inspiring, contemplative, causing tension as a consequence of challenge of the past and the present.
