Abstract

In this paper I examine Arvo Pärt's music through the lens of Orthodox Christian theology. Specifically, and independently of confessional texts (or the lack thereof), I consider a number of his works as they relate to the theology of the Incarnation, bearing in mind the composer's attitude to sound and its relation to silence.
