Mildred Kayden opens the album with an in-depth interview with Dom Ludovic Baron about the history and developments of chants, followed by several examples of "Plain Chant". Dom Ludovic Baron says "we can sing; our chant will have all the power of its expression and the grace that passes through it… it will travel into the innermost corners of our churches to reach souls." Liner notes include a transcription of the interview and an introduction to Gregorian Chants by Kayden.
