The Muscial notation of latin liturgical chants


A return to the original sources as the fundamental basis of historical research is absolutely necessary for the acquisition of accurate scientific knowledge, while also providing the scholar with the most rewarding of artistic experiences.

In the domain of ancient music, considered either as a performing art to be revived, or as an object of scholarly study, the manuscript is the only source enabling us to know, today, what the music sounded like.

A study of more than 40 kinds of musical notation taken from ancient manuscripts, this edition is for those who wish to understand more fully the most ancient forms of monody, and the chants of the Latin and the Eastern Christian liturgies, their musical structure and their particular aesthetic language.
