I saw that video too.
Liked it a lot. Impressive.

It’s a commonly used chant melody which is easily adaptable for almost any Introit. I think it’s borrowed from Asperges Me. Maybe someone more familiar with chant music can comment on this.

Yes - and I love it most and remember it best
as the melody for “Puer natus est … .”
