Arvo Pärt’s Passio: An Introduction

Each character has a basic note value, and this is lengthened depending on the punctuation and its position within the phrase. Since a period at the end of a sentence generates a note longer than does a comma in the middle of it, the hierarchy of the textual phrases is reflected in the music. Each section begins with a different solo voice, an instrument then joins it, and this pattern continues until all 8 are sounding.

The alto and bass voices and oboe and bassoon are always M-voices Hillier’s coinage, referring to the melody voice in arvp tintinnabuli configuration ; the soprano and tenor voices and violin and cello are always T-voices again, Hillier’s coinage referring to the harmonizing voice. In the case where a T-voice is presented alone, the M-voice is simply implied.

Passio (Pärt)

Christ always has the longest and lowest notes, creating a stark contrast with the other characters. The pitch center for Christ is E, and it is accompanied by a drone and T-voice in the organ. For the turba, the pitch center is again E. The alto and bass voices, again always playing an M role, are mirrored, and the soprano and tenor T-voices alternate above and below the M-voices. While both are centered on E, the M-voices use E Phrygian against E major in the T-voices; this makes for striking cross-relations between G-natural and G-sharp, though the two never sound at the same time.


Pilate, like Christ, is accompanied only by the organ, but sings in faster rhythmic values and has a higher tessitura.

Pilate’s part is the most unstable in the piece, created in part through the use of an M-voice centered on B and a T-voice centered on F a tritone apart and through the refusal of Pilate to be either a T-voice or M-voice, always alternating between these two roles.
