Notes & Reviews:

"The result sounds vaguely Arabic, and the presence of specific ornaments in Old Roman chant adds credibility to the notion that such singing was the common heritage of Western, Middle Eastern, Greek Orthodox, and Coptic rites in the Middle Ages; surviving in all traditions save the first. It moreover has a darker and more "gothic" sound than Gregorian chant and Ensemble Organum does a great job of dressing it up, adding drones, assigning solo passages to singers well suited for them, and even throwing in a snatch of polyphony here and there... for Old Roman chant -- some of the oldest music we can still hear -- this is as good as it gets." -All Music Guide
