A profound sadness pervades the works of this Estonian composer, whose fervent spirituality and respect for quietude lend his music a mystical sensibility. The hymn-like "Fratres" contains a simple repetition of strings moving around distant percussive taps, while the eloquently plain eulogy "Cantus…" sounds a cloud of notes Part likened to the ringing of bells.
