Audio Chant -- Coming in December

Six characters live together in an abandoned monastery. When they arrived, they found an old cloak and a book of chants gathering dust in a corner. They leave the interpretation of the musical notes to one character, an Ordinate chosen at random at their yearly festival. Those interpretations guide the organization and duties of their group. The novella begins with the festival. A newly-arrived character, just rescued from a near drowning, by chance becomes the new Ordinate. The newcomer’s interpretations follow a different path. Instead of melody, he argues for harmony and love.
