Arvo Pärt’s La Sindone

West Virginia Public Broadcasting (PBS and NPR) is reporting that the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra is closing out their 2014-15 season tonight with a concert that features Arvo Pärt’s La Sindone–a deep, mysterious, and emotional journey describing the Shroud of Turin.

There is some interesting discussion (audio) on the webpage and a brief sample of the music at the 3:25 mark.

There is also a wonderful nine minute long rendition of the music on YouTube from  "Pärt: La Sindone" by Tõnu Kaljuste. The same recording is also available at AmazonMP3 (free for Prime members).
