The soul is distracted from that which is sung by a chant that is employed for the purpose of giving pleasure. But if the singer chant for the sake of devotion, he pays more attention to what he says, both because he lingers more thereon, and because, as Augustine remarks (Confess. x, 33), “each affection of our spirit, according to its variety, has its own appropriate measure in the voice, and singing, by some hidden correspondence wherewith it is stirred.” The same applies to the hearers, for even if some of them understand not what is sung, yet they understand why it is sung, namely, for God's glory: and this is enough to arouse their devotion.
— St. Thomas Aquinas

"How Do I Use Gregorio? How Do I Use GABC?"
published 8 June 2013 by Jeff Ostrowski

ANY MUSICIANS DESIRE to create beautiful Gregorian chant scores, but have no idea how. The answer is simple: use Gregorio. This free program allows each of us to effortlessly create fantastic musical scores with GABC.

To prove how easy it is, I created the following Gregorio Training Video while holding a baby!

Gratitude is owed to Veronica Brandt, Richard Chonak, and Aristotle Esguerra. By the way, if you’re too lazy to copy down the URL links in the video, here they are:

      * *  Gregorio Interface    •    English Lyrics    •    1-Page Summary    •    Latin Lyrics


Wasn’t that an extremely easy video to follow? If you disagree, please let me know in the combox.
