Since Christian antiquity, liturgical chant has been the central and normative form of music for liturgy in the Western or Roman Catholic liturgical tradition, and this form of sacred music continues to be popular today, whether in the liturgy or as a source of contemplation and peaceful relaxation. The term Gregorian chant takes its name from Pope Gregory the Great (d. 604), under whose directives forms of Byzantine chant were introduced into the Roman liturgy and from there spread throughout Latin Christendom.  In the middle ages, regional variations of Gregorian chant flourished, and all of the great religious orders, including the Premonstratensians, developed their own distinct varieties of chant within the wider Gregorian tradition.

This evening symposium, through a combination of discussion and actual performance, will explore this rich tradition of Norbertine chant in the beautiful and historic venue of Old St. Joseph Church.
