Program note:

After the 2019 Notre Dame cathedral fire, I began thinking deeply about the musical history of the building and how thousands of people have worshiped there. In this piece, I depict this by utilizing organ-like textures and chant themes that symbolize what choirs could sing there. Overall, it's a portrait of the cathedral in all of its glory.
