Default Arvo Pärt

Arvo Pärt, any of y'all fans?

I'm new and couldn't see much about him, ideal opportunity to make people aware of this guys amazing music. He's a modern Estonian classical composer with some pretty amazing compositions. Mainly minimalistic but epic (sounds a bit contradictory no?) pieces which are a joy to listen to, really atmospheric and perfect for relaxing. I wouldn't be too scared if you're not a keen classical music fan, I'd say he's the sort of composer who could make a sceptic become a fan.

Anyway, good things to start with would probably be:

Te Deum and Tabula Rasa.

Any other members have any favourite compositions?

I'd post links to CD covers and links to YouTube but I'm currently working my way out of the newbie straight jacket which restricts me to using text only.
