Polyphonic. Gregorian. Simple. Quiet. Reverent.

Strings and voices.

Or just voices?

For the last few decades I have been going to church. 

I have often thought there must be another sound out there, closer to the Byzantine tradition perhaps, more modal, more solemn.

I would like to spend the last few decades

trying to render audible what has been sealed into my inner ear.
