Lost Chant of the Mozarabic Rite Restored by Computer:
Service, Book & CD
Gregoriana Amsterdam will perform a fictitious service from the lost Mozarabic Rite. Afterwards the book "Calculemus et Cantemus" will be presented. The book offers 50 computationally restored chants of the lost Mozarabic Rite with introductory articles by international experts and an Audio CD with an anthology of the restored chants.
The Mozarabic Rite existed on the Iberian Peninsula and Southern France from the sixth till eleventh century. In 1085 it was officially abolished in favour of the Roman Rite. The chant was replaced by Gregorian Chant. Over 5000 chants of the Mozarabic Rite have been preserved in unheightened medieval neumatic notation. Only a few of these chants were found in pitch readable notation. The vast majority of Mozarabic Chants therefore seems irretrievably lost. One of the great tragedies of medieval music history.
