ST MARY MAGDALEN’S
Gregorian Chant, also called Plainchant from the Old French plein chant meaning ‘full singing’, is an age-old tradition of prayer through music. More chant than singing, it is based on the songs in synagogues that Jesus would have sung. In the 7th century A.D., St Gregory the Great was responsible for restoring Chant as it is heard today. It is a means of entering a meditative state closer to God.
