Gregorian Chants

I’m listening to a Gregorian Chant as I type, Paschale Mysterium, the mystery of Easter. The chants are monophonic liturgical music used to accompany mass. The chants were named in honor of St. Gregory who was pope during the time the chants were collected and codified. I enjoy the chants during times of meditation. The sound has a healing, soothing effect.

  1. Meredith, your timing is amazing! I was just finishing up a piano lesson, and we got into a wonderful discussion about Gregorian chant. I told the student (junior high age) that I wish more people would take the time to hear the beauty and simplicity in this music. The student left, and my teaching day over, I got online, and here is your post! Delightful! 🙂
