Description

Here is the great classic by the master of the second generation of Solesmes chant scholars, the results of a lifetime of study of chant manuscripts and a spectacular effort at making the chant of the Catholic Church accessible to the world. He explains his perspective on rhythm, notes, and typography, and provides a remarkably detailed explanation of each neume and why and how Solesmes did the work that it did.

The English translation of Le nombre musical grégorien originally appeared in two separate volumes. This edition presents the two parts in a single volume of 437 pages.

The Mocquereau legend is larger than life: here you can read and learn from the master musician and scientist on his own terms.

Softcover, 437 pages.

Originally published in 1932.  Reprinted in 2007 by the Church Music Association of America.
