A simple and friendly guide to reading chant notation, the easiest guide in print to make learning Gregorian Chant fast and easy!
Big notes and clusters are easier to read – remember first grade and drawing big letters? – than smaller ones. When you open the modern Parish Book of Chant or the Liber Usualis, you’ll find that the square notes are suddenly easy to read.
The notes in Gregorian chant are arranged like cars on a train. Each group of notes has a clear purpose, and when connected to the other notes in the melody, they create music.
Join the new schola at your church or school and find yourself confident and comfortable reading Gregorian Chant.
"This was a great refresher, it’s been years since I sang chant and this brought it all back to me fast!"
"Our schola appreciates how effective this book is, seeing these big notes makes it so much easier to recognize them in today’s small printed pages that we usually find in chant books."
