The piece is made up of two components: Tallinn Mass is a setting in Latin, with some important phrases reiterated in Estonian. The second is Dance of Life, consisting of nineteen new poems by the above mentioned poets, inspired by the famous 15th century painting by Bernt Notke, “Dance of Death”, in Tallinn’s St. Nicholas Church. All musical ideas are inspired by Estonian culture and folkore – original folksongs from as early as the 1930’s appear, as does the constant presence of the Estonian psaltery, the “kannel”, a traditional Estonian instrument.
