'Columba Canticles seeks to explore the medium and tradition of devotional music in a fresh and contemporary way. All the movements embrace the convention of including a cantus firmus or plainsong. Several of these Gregorian chants date back to the 9th Century and have, ever since, provided the creative backbone to a vast body of ecclesiastical music. In Columba Canticles, whenever you hear something sung in Latin, you can be sure that somewhere in the background there also hovers one of these ancient chants.' - laurenceroman.com
