“To treat harmony and rhythm in this matter was a difficult matter. Facing numerous problems both large and small—that arose constantly—we understood that a flawless harmonization of Gregorian chant cannot be created by improvisation, no matter the competence and ability of the organist or harmonist.”
— Mons. Jules Van Nuffel, NOH Preface

Color by "Neum"ber ERE IS A FANTASTIC RESOURCE – a chant workbook for kids, shared via the Musica Sacra Forum. Twelve pages with copious illustrations, ready to support a lesson on pitch, rhythm and the basic chants for the Mass from Pope Paul VI’s little booklet Jubilate Deo. There are pictures to colour, words to trace and just a little bit of the story of why we sing Gregorian chant.

This children’s book was a follow up to another workbook Carl Neimeyer shared for an introductory workshop in Gregorian chant. 16 pages of handsome, simple info on Gregorian chant, reminiscent of A Gregorian Chant Masterclass by Dr. Marier.

So head over to the Musica Sacra Forum and have a look.
