A double treat with Vultum tuum .  Thanks again, Sig. Ricossa.  Your use of gracenotes is very interesting.

naturally, it was the comm. for the last sunday, displaced by St Laurent

Many thanks for that recording of Quod dico vobis, Signor Ricossa.  I found your rendition of the word 'tecta' very interesting.

you normally go to your profile and select your photo. I don't know why it doesn't work for you. May be the size is not correct (=too big)?

Dear Colleagues,

Is there anybody who knows how I have to put my photo on the site?

My photo appears following the upload and I see the 'preview', but then the program stops and so nothing further happens.

The following document is online and contains one page of precious Nonantolan notation.

I find the mode 8 termination particularly interesting as it demonstrates that the terminations which contains such quantities (that is, 1, 3, 7 & 8) could accommodate both stress patterns / * * / * and / * / * *.  I wonder if the general opposition of authentic and plagal systems was originally created for psalm singing or for an older kind of rhetorical singing.

My own Gregorian chant group is composed of non-professional musicians and we work at learning all chants by memory.  One important aid to this in the singing of the psalms is marking out in our memory the beginning of the clausulae in each of the verses of a psalm.  The use of proportionalism, which ignores verbal stress, is very useful in making sure that we don't make mistakes with the melodic terminations, which I find a difficulty of the 'nuancing' approach because it demands that the stressed syllables of the terminations are stressed counter to the prosody of the melody.

I will try to upload a file giving a strict interpretation of the quantities as we usually find them in Einsiedeln 121 with the melodies of Graduale Novum 1 and my representations of the so-called "mixed cursus".

Je vous conseille de consulter avant tout le très précieux ouvrage de Dom Jumilhac : La Science et la Pratique du Plain Chant, paris, 1847.

Pour ma part, j'ai toujours pensé que les hymnes métriques : saphiques, asclépiades et trochaïques devraient être chantées métriquement, en tenant compte du fait que la longue devait avoir une durée plus souple que la stricte valeur du rapport 1/2, puisque le latin utilisé datait de la basse époque.
