Here is the great classic by the master of the second generation of Solesmes chant scholars, the results of a lifetime of study of chant manuscripts and a spectacular effort at making the chant of the Catholic Church accessible to the world. He explains his perspective on rhythm, notes, and typography, and provides a remarkably detailed explanation of each neume and why and how Solesmes did the work that it did.
