At the same time, many people (especially the young ones) are looking for a spiritual experience. This proposal intends to put together these two facts, and to explore the relationship between text and melody. Everyone has a need of personal expression. If truly respected, such expression must touch our deepest and existential feelings and thoughts. Gregorian Chant in itself is a vehicle of the deepest existential message.
