PEETER VAHI Maria Magdalena

Latvian National Symphony Orchestra / Risto Joost

The New Testament gospels have inspired many choral works. However musical settings of the gnostic gospels are extremely rare. The manuscript for Mary Magdalene’s gospel was discovered in Egypt in 1896 but the Coptic text dates back to the early second century and gives examples of Jesus preaching to his disciples after the resurrection and some at times brutal discussion among the apostles afterwards.

The works of Estonian composer Peeter Vähi (b 1955) have been widely performed across Europe, America and Asia. His music, which makes use of the widest possible dynamic range, is recognisably exotic and often features ancient instruments as well as electronic facilities. About this piece Vähi wrote “I have not tried to make a stylization of Coptic Liturgy. Only some percussion instruments (sistrums and Egyptian drums) that are used in the Coptic Church have found their way into the score, even then bearing more of a symbolic meaning.”
