At the source of Gregorian Chant.
The Gallican (= peculiar to the Church of the Gauls) contribution played a leading role in the constitution of the Gregorian repertory. This is distinguished by its surprising rhetorical richness, and an extremely ambitious, both expansive and supple melodic line. This highly spiritual chant lies at the very foundations of our musical culture.
