Alexander Lingas and Arvo Pärt!

Alexander Lingas and Arvo Pärt
Many, many thanks to the gracious staff of the Arvo Pärt Centre for making a hastily arranged research trip turn out to be a visit full of human warmth, productive study, and spiritual reflection. Special thanks to Arvo and Nora Pärt, who gave selflessly of their time to enrich my understanding and experience. I leave Estonia today deeply thankful for all these blessings and looking forward to returning before too long.
