Today's chant renaissance has created a need for effective teaching tools . A Gregorian Chant Handbook is a worthy resource in this time of renewed interest in chant and its heightened use .

It is intended to teach musicians how to read chant (square note) notation and to provide an understanding of chant phrasing, interpretation, style, modes, psalmody, and the art of conducting chant . This book also contains information on the structure of the Mass, Latin diction and pronunciation, a selection of practical repertoire in Latin and English, and a brief list of bibliographical resources .

A Gregorian Chant Handbook is the ideal resource for pastoral musicians who want to incorporate chant into parish worship .
