St. Michael Prayer - New Chant Setting

I'm always interested by chant settings of common prayers such as the Salve Regina (Hail Holy Queen), Ave Maria (Hail Mary). Recently I was alerted to a new composition with the text of the St. Michael Prayer! I have to say, I really like it. At first glance, I noticed the nice word painting of the higher notes over "hosts of heaven" and the lower notes for "evil spirits." I may end up using this.

What do you think about it? Check out the PDF here, or the original source here.
