Gregorian chant is still a seminal force in choral music, even a thousand years after Saint Gregory the Great lent it his name. Jon Washburn and Kevin Zakresky conduct the Vancouver Chamber Choir in an a cappella programme that traces choral repertoire back to the Gregorian chant on which it is based.
