An Estonian minimalist composer. I first listened to Te Deum, in 1993, a year after I'd started college, while I was dating a boy I shouldn't have. He wanted to buy me things, so I had him buy me that album; I bought him a copy, too. One of those cases where something
you picked up because you were dating someone sticks around.
Sadly, most things don't. My fascinations with Star Trek: The Original Series, REM, the Clancy Brothers, and speed metal have faded and been tinted in sepia.
Other things, like Neil Gaiman and Te Deum's "Magnificat," remain.
