A thorough and revealing work showing how all facets of chant composition - mode, rhetoric, neumatic rhythms, and ornamentation - combine to bring out the proper concepts in the text. The thorough discussion of chant construction is followed by instruction for teaching and conducting the chant - a most important facet for those used to conducting regular rhythms instead of verbal rhythms. Any chant conductor would probably derive some new aspects from this work and all beginners should study it. (CD for Gregorian Chant Intonations included).
