The piece is inspired by Cantice of Zechariah from Matins prayers. The deep construction of the piece contains skeleton of Gregorian choral and a motet written by Thomas Louis da Victoria. I wanted to interpret the text and dramaturgy of the Cantice, "Preces and Responses" way of performing, at the final, contain them in the form of my piece in a new, modern way. The piece connects old school of counterpoint and modern, sonoristic colours.
