You made me look Arvo Pärt up.

To see if he was dead yet.

No such luck.

I enjoy the quiet reticence of Pärt's later output, particular the use of tintinnabulation that lends much of his music a kind of perpetually falling, unwinding, melancholies atmosphere.

This is evident in works like Stabat Mater, Tabula Rosa, and Salve Regina - which also bear the faint impression of Bach's liturgical work imo.

Will Arvo be composing from the dead? Or just decomposing?

It's this schmaltzy sentimentalism he seems to trowel on everything with unrelenting, religious fervour that puts me off his oeuvre. I did manage to listen to Spiegel im Spiegel in its entirety once. Had to have a shower to get the drippings off me.

Only one 20th century composer comes readily to my mind, whose output I dislike more than Pärt's, but I will not mention his name in case you are tempted to torment me with Youtube links of Yiannis Chryssomallis doing his stuff.

In the late 80s I spent a bleary evening in the pub, culminating in a trip to the curry house, with what is now a long-running ensemble called His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts (after a piece by Matthew Locke (Wiki)). I'd forgotten all about it until I heard that! :tup:

Their live performances are not well represented on YouTube, though there's a few albums available there. Anyway, this should gird your loins. :D

These are not any different from Mozart, but Reicha wrote more of them than nearly anyone
