From the composer:

"This idea of this piece was sparked by wanting to play with suspensions and resolutions. I wondered what it would sound like if just as one note resolved, another moved to create another suspension, and on and on.

"Because of the sense of yearning the suspensions create, and the liturgical sound it evokes to me, I named it 'Praeteritum,' which is Latin for 'the past.'"
