Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir
Conductor Tõnu Kaljuste

From the website of Music at Oxford:


The programme Da pacem Domine (Give us peace) was performed by EPCC under Tõnu Kaljuste for the first time this year on 7 May, in the Estonian-Russian border city Narva.

The concert was part of the Tallinn/Narva Music Week and made an important statement about the war in Ukraine. In the Russian Orthodox Church Issanda Ülestõusmise peakirik – which opened its doors for the first time for the public concert – the audience experienced, through the music of Arvo Pärt, a moment of peace as a prayer or hope for the future. By bringing this programme to Oxford as the opening concert of our festival, EPCC continues to shine a light on the need for peace.
