Nonpareil, to say the least: It's a choral setting of the Heart Sutra, translated into Esperanto.
--San Francisco Chronicle
The Esperanto title of "La Koro Sutro" means 'the Heart Sutra' which is among the most used and profound of Buddhist sutras. 'The Heart Sutra' is the essence of the Perfect Wisdom Scriptures (1st century B.C. onwards) belonging to Mahayana Buddhism. It refers to the heart of divine wisdom ('Hagia Sophia' in Greek). This philosophic text is approximately contemporary to the Byzantine era in the West.
