  1. There is only pretentious know-nothingness by those who claim Arvo Part & Co. achieve numinous heights and depths. Part, like Messaien, and Ligeti, are trash. Real heavenly music can be found in the sacred music of the Western Masters.

    • As explained here I still love Ligeti’s Lux Aeterna which is a mixture of both the atonal and the tonal.

      • We’ll disagree then, but I’m sure that you’re familiar with his other compositions. They are not good, shall we say?

      • No: I only have two old LP disks of Ligeti that my father bought in the late 1960s or early 70s as a result of listening to Ligeti’s music in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

        I like the compasses that Kubrick chose for both the Moon landscape scenes and the eerie Requiem by the end of the film.
