#88 The Smell of Eternity

It's very easy to love Credo. The heavenly choir parts, the fight with eternal fires, the primitive and subtle and humble piano line, so clean and pure it goes to heaven in the finale.

Here Pärt reaches the same eternity Bach does: the shivering, the light, the magic touch of something not coming from this world. It is easy to love Credo: it's about love.

Composer: Arvo Pärt
Work: Credo
Recording: Hélène Grimaud, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Choir, Esa-Pekka Salonen
