In 2019, Dubois wrote two arrangements for SATB a cappella of Ik zag Cecilia komen, created by the Geels Vocaal Ensemble conducted by Eva Vermeren during their concert trip to Barcelona.

From Dufay, the profane song l'homme armé would become one of the most beloved cantus firmi. It originated in the second half of the 15th century. The popular melody has been used in more than thirty masses during the Renaissance period, of which the ones in Dufay, Ockeghem and Busnois are the earliest in the series. Jacob Obrecht paid tribute to his teacher Antoine Busnois by copying his composition of this melody as cantus firmus identically in his Missa l'homme armé.
Maarten Van Ingelgem (°1976) took his inspiration from the African Lamtietie Damtietie. The author of the text, Cornelis Jacob Langenhoven (1873-1932), is regarded as one of Africa’s best-known writers and, as a member of parliament, campaigned tirelessly for Afrikaans to be an official language in South Africa. The poetic text was expressed in an evocative contemporary lullaby for a children's, youth or women's choir that is not intimidated by chants and whistles. Dedicated to Ida & Ellis, daughters of Van Ingelgem.
Laudate Dominum by Sebastiaan van Steenberge is a challenge for an amateur choir and a refreshing liturgical work.
