Description

Excerpt from Hymn-Melodies for the Whole Year From the Sarum Antiphonal and Other Ancient English Sources: Together With Sequences for the Principal Seasons and Festivals

The mss. By no means shew that uniformity of musical text which is so remarkable in the stricter and more elaborate Plainsong of the Gradual, for they seem to have been more subjected to the usual in?uences which cause variations in popular music. Considerable pains have been 'taken to find the best text of each melody, but, wherever possible, the Sarum form of melody has been adopted in preference to others, not merely because of the pre-eminence of the Sarum use, but also because on the whole the Sarum forms are intrinsically among the best.
