ERE IS A VIDEO of Arvo Pärt’s commencement speech at St. Vladimir’s Seminary in 2014. This video shows how the composer is deeply rooted in the faith. He believes that one must prepare the soul before producing good music and the music will reflect how well one’s soul is. Human soul is the most sensitive musical instrument. This is definitely a video worth watching and reflecting on.
