Pärt and Pope

I did not know that the great "composer Arvo Pärt performed his Vater unser (Our Father) for Pope Benedict XVI at a ceremony in the Vatican celebrating the 60th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood" and "also presented the Pope with a copy of the manuscript, which is dedicated to him" — Universal Edition: music for the Pope. Listen — Arvo Pärt - Vater Unser.
