175 Views· 02/20/23
This presentation — given at the Sacred Liturgy Conference in Spokane, Washington, in May 2019 — explains why Gregorian chant is the supreme model of sacred music, a reservoir of faith and a wellspring of devotion. It has three parts: (1) a rapid sketch of the history of chant in the Western liturgy; (2) why we sing our liturgy rather than merely speaking it; (3) the eight characteristics that make Gregorian chant uniquely suited to the Catholic liturgy. Visual images and musical examples are included.
