With Domine Deus in simplicitate, Ludo Claesen takes us to Gregorian chant. The beginning of the composition refers to the original melody of the Gregorian hymn. Claesen does not literally copy the melody line, but retains the idea behind the practice: the melismatic singing or in other words, the singing of several notes on a syllable.
Ludo Claesen wrote Domine non est exaltatum (psalm 131) for a colloquium in August 2016. The feasibility for an average church choir was an important criterion.
