    The sheet music of Arvo Pärts 'Spiegel im Spiegel' illustrates his creative principles: above a permanent flow of chords on the piano, the viola unfolds acantilena in long note values, which grows out of succinct steps. This cantilena spins out sweeping, chorale-like arches and spreads itself out more and more. It thus gives rise to a new architectonic configuration which, like a mediation chapel, stimulates reflection, prayer or the desire for redemption.
