Programme Note:
The material for this work came from the results of an experiment when the composer was a student at the Yale School of Music. The results of the experiment was a derivation of motific elements that constitute the actual material of the Gregorian chants of Mode V. The results of this experiment were used in the composition of this piece. An explanation of the motivic elements was document in an article in the Yale Journal of Music Theory Volume 9/2 Pg. 281: "Procedures for the Analysis of Form: Two Computer Applications".Although similar to many actual chant melodies, the thematic material of the composition for organ is actually only a selection of probable pitch sequences, from the most likely to the less probable.
