Everything you need to know about Gregorian chant!
A Gregorian Chant Handbook
William Tortolano

"Gregorian chant is sung prayer and has been a central expression of beauty and musical excellence for many centuries."

– William Tortolano

Today's chant renaissance has created a need for effective teaching tools. A Gregorian Chant Handbook is a worthy resource in this time of renewed interest in chant and its heightened use. It is intended to teach musicians how to read chant (square note) notation and to provide an understanding of chant phrasing, interpretation, style, modes, psalmody, and the art of conducting chant.

This book also contains information on the structure of the Mass, Latin diction and pronunciation, a selection of practical repertoire in Latin and English, and a brief list of bibliographical resources. A Gregorian Chant Handbook is the ideal resource for pastoral musicians who want to incorporate chant into parish worship.
