    This piece is a transcription of a composition originally conceived for choir and large orchestra commissioned by the "Knabenkantorei Basel". The text which stem from the liturgical chants "Cantionale" by Thomas Kress, Basel's last Carthusian monk, serve as a medieval sacred counterpart to the texts of Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana". This composition tries to capture the same archaic feel as "Carmina Burana" but with a more solemn sacral atmosphere in order to do justice to the texts which honour the two saints Pelagius and Theodolus.
