5 stars If it worked once, why wouldn't it work again? The same formula that made "Officium" a best seller for ECM is used again in "Officium Novum"-Jan Garbarek on soprano and tenor saxophone together with Hilliard Ensemble, only that this time they play vocal pieces from Eastern Europe from medieval sources but also from 20th century Armenian priest, musicologist, and composer Komitas; Nikolai N. Kedrov, a Russian composer of the same era; mid-20th century Greek composer Giorgios Sefaris; Estonian Arvo Prt. Someone said about "Officium" that either you love it, or you hate it.Well it remains valid for "Officium Novus" too. For me it's worth a *****, although it's place in progarchives is arguable.
