Estonian-born composer Arvo Part is in the news. Last week, he announced that all of this season's performances of his music would be dedicated to slain Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya. From a concert earlier this year at Spivey Hall, just outside Atlanta, Paul Hillier leads the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir in a performance of Part's "Magnificat."
