The Choir of Trinity Wall Street
The Choir of Trinity Wall Street perform Brian Eno’s Music for Airports and Arvo Pärt’s Kanon Pokajanen – the Canon of Repentance
Brian Eno invented ambient music with his revolutionary 1978 studio album Music for Airports. Made of tape loops and electronic sounds, Eno never intended it to be performed live, but in 1998 the Bang on a Can All-Stars premiered their own live version and they have toured it around the globe ever since. This performance adds the live voices of The Choir of Trinity Wall Street.
Estonian composer Arvo Pärt’s music has been described as “holy minimalism” – simple, direct, unornamented, spiritually focused. Kanon Pokajanen – the Canon of Repentance – is his magnum opus and is performed here by The Choir of Trinity Wall Street.
