Music Monday--Gregorian Chant Ave Maria
Today's Music Monday features a Medieval Ave Maria done in Gregorian chant.
Saturday was the feast of St. Gregory the Great, who tradition points to as the final arranger of Roman Chant.
This particular chant is an Ave Maria, in honor of the birthday of Our Lady on September 8th.
The YouTube video shows an original Medieval copy of the plain chant notation, which is still used in some chant choirs and monasteries today.
