Inspired by two ideas from sacred music: "troping" (adding new music to existing music, or using existing music as the basis for further explorations) from Medieval music (especially plainchant), and secondly from the "collects", the short prayers of the church. Commissioned for Stephen Gilewski with a grant from the Broeker Fund for New Music.
