How successful is this book?
A woman and her 7 year old daughter were at a fast food restaurant and the daughter saw her mother looking at the practice files from the internet, shown below. Her daughter asked to try it and was reading and singing chant before they left the restaurant.
Created for people who want to learn how to read and sing Gregorian Chant, using the 8 notes of Joy to the World to give you a firm foundation and before long, you know all the notes of chant and also the intervals, that is, how to step or jump from one note to another.
Once we work through the intervals, which does not take long, you then begin singing actual Gregorian Chants in English.
English? Why? Trying to learn to sing in Latin and sing Gregorian Chant is like trying to learn to ride a bike and juggle at the same time – two different activities.
Here you get to hear chant sung by one of the expert chant singers our time and learn to sing along.
