Gregorian Chant

 

As the story, A Year and a Day, points out, our daily life revolved around the prayers together as a community. For more than 45 years, this plainsong of Gregorian chant has haunted me and that's a good thing. I can hear the echoes of that music all these years later.

I have assembled a few pieces with the help of my collection of music and, thanks to the Internet and Church Music Association of America, there now exists a copy of a book, the Liber Usualis (1961), for anyone to read. Both the Kyriale Romanum for 1961 and 2001 are available as well

This was our musical bible. It told us how to sing, what to sing, and when to sing. Its 2,340+ pages are replete with plainsong chant for any occasion in the liturgical year.

I have taken the images of that music (with a little graphical prerogative) and overlaid it with the audio, hopefully not in violation of anyone's copyrights. To the right, you will find about 40 links to those that I have completed.  If you go to my YouTube channel, http://youtuve.com/sgeorgeaz, you'll find all 200 pieces.

There is a great source of memories within this music.  Listen to some of them and the music will evoke those memories. 

Enjoy
