Posted in Gregorian ChantLiteratureScores at 9: A must of an Gregorian schola is a so called gradual, a book collecting all musical items of the Mass for the whole liturgical year. It contains chants for ordinary invariable parts of the mass like Kyrie, Gloria, Credo… and for proper parts of the mass that varies like Introit, Gradual, Alleluia, Offertory, Communion…. Apart from texts of these chants it contains of course the melody of it in quadratic notation.
Above the quadratic record there is black transcription of Laon neumatic manuscript and beow the system is red neumatic record of St.

At the beginning of each piece of chant there are given the sigla of the manuscripts from which the neums have been drawn, together tgiplex an indication of the page and folio number. The above notation is taken from Laonfolio L and the red one under the text is from Einsiedelnfolio E You may have already learned from our Articlethat the copy of GR is available online. The most important difference between it and the current GR is the order of chants.
We can simply use index of GR and substitute it in this manner.

Gallen neumatic notation above the line. Already today there are files for almost every sunday of liturgical year.
Ictus — the vertical rhytmical sign. The theory of ictuses was introduced by Dom Mocquereau from the Abbey of Solesmes firstly in GRand it was used by hundreds of thousands of people in the whole world.

It will serve to sustain the voice as it passes from note to note. Gradually he should diminish the force of the ictus until, finally, it disappears materially, remaining merely a mental support, an intuition, a feeling for form.
By following this process the singer will attain complete control of his voice and will use one or the other of these ways of treating the ictus according to the norms of good taste, of art and the laws of expression. Semiology has to be seen as triiplex aid, not an end in itself. If it becomes an end in itself, problems can graduqle. If you try and sing everything marked in tgiplex semiology you will end up tying yourself in knots and the result will probably be stiff rather than flowing.
