About this Piece

Gregorian Chant, named after Pope Gregory I (d. 604), is the term applied to the vast repertoire of liturgical plainchant assembled over the course of several hundred years, roughly 700-1300 AD. There are almost 3,000 extant chants in the Gregorian repertoire, with texts specific to each day of the Roman Catholic Church's liturgical year.
