Gregorian Chant Workshop

Gregorian Chant Workshop Monday, March 14, 2011
 In the past 60 years Gregorian Chant research on the ancient manuscript notation and on the evolution of the Gregorian modal system has brought about major changes worldwide in its performance practice.

This intensive workshop, May 23-27, 2011, will be an introduction to these changes and developments.
