Gregorian Chant: Communion Verses Vol. 1 (Download License)

chorus or solo cantor

The communion verse is a good accessible entry into Gregorian chant. These pieces are
relatively short, but still provide the essentials of the musical principles and styles of the
eight chant modes. They can be learned quickly and have a variety of uses.

The transcriptions are based in general on the accentualist principles of Dom Joseph
Pothier O.S.B., that the natural word accents of the texts and the grouping of the notes in the neumes of the original chant notation reveal the rhythmic structures of the melody. The neum groupings are shown by eighth-note beaming.
