After many months in transit, I finally received these two Arvo Part cassettes direct from the label, ECM. I love ECM in general and they have cemented themselves as one of my top three jazz labels over the years. They also have had a long running classical sublabel called ECM New Series. There are many amazing releases on this imprint in my opinion, but perhaps my favorite composer/performer is Arvo Part. So when I saw that ECM had turned up some deadstock of these deluxe cassette editions from the 80's and were selling them for their original list price, I leapt. Do I already have these on wax? Yes. Do I need these? No. Am I going to enjoy the hell out of opening and playing them tonight? Bet the house on it.

Largely minimal, mostly chant and choral based, neo-classical and religious compositions as methods to achieve pseudo-mystic levels of musical enlightenment.

Hell yes, JM. Hell yes. It's transformative shit.
