Background Information: Gregorian Chant
Compositions of the most different styles and genres, spanning over a thousand years, are brought together under the term "Gregorian Chant". The only characteristics which are common to all these extremely different vocal works are the monophony, the text being in Latin and the unconstrained, free rhythm; in terms of key, melody and ambitus they differ greatly, so that it is rather an unfortunate levelling-out to collect such musical variety and contrast, which came into being over hundreds of years, under one common term.

Gregorian chant was and is still the vocal works of the Divine Service of the Latin Church. Above all it is concerned with communal prayer, sounding out the praise of the Lord:

Ut in omnibus glorificetur Deus!
That in all things God may be glorified!

(according to P. Gottfried Meier OSB, Gerleve)
