I re-recorded the given gregorian chant in a nice cozy plush cat tower (our cat love it).
Took that recording, de-reverbed it (yes, there’s a plugin for that). Then added reverb, more reverb, different brands of reverb, some layers of different pitch, even more reverbs. Recorded, mixed and treated in Gleetchlab.

Disquiet Junto Project 0063: Gregorian-orian-ian
This week’s project involves the role of architectural spaces in the composition of music. It is a shared-sample project that takes a piece of Gregorian chant as its source material.
These are the steps:
Step 1: Download this OGG audio file that contains a recording of monks singing Gregorian chant at the Abbey of Sant’Antimo in Italy:
Step 2: Play back that recording loudly in a highly reverberant space and record it. Your best bet may be a bathroom.
Step 3: Create a new piece of music using the recording you just made as your primary source material. You cannot add any new source material. You can manipulate the audio recording as you please, but restrict yourself to effects that simulate echo, such as delay, reverb, and looping. You may also use the original OGG file, but only in addition to your own recording of it being played back in the reverberant space.
Background: For additional thinking on the role that architecture has played in the evolution of music, this 2010 talk by David Byrne is recommended:
