"Sgr Ricossa, Rapprochement between Solesmes and mensural approaches can be very difficult to achieve and discussion unnecessarily fraught.  If the Solesmes advocates cannot even agree that the notation is rhythmically unclear and ambiguous, it…"

"Fr Weber, I am grateful to you in turn for gracing my response with a reply.  I hope you can understand why mensuralists react they way they do too.  On one occasion, a supporter of a Solesmes approach claimed to…"

"With regard to (memo)ria(lis) and (ce)lebra(bitis) in the offertory Erit vobis, the idea of a rhythmic weight or stress on the C seems to me to be an assumption coming from a given musical background.  In Scottish vocal slurs, the musical…"

"I reproduced that transcription because it was at hand at home.  It is of a soloistic rendering by an extremely skilled singer.  Unskilled singers in a congregation in Egypt can sing in a plainer manner that comes closer to the likes of…"

"I for one am puzzled at your disdain for this thread of discussion.  It seems superfluous to say the following but there is worthwhile cause to reply to your last statement. What you call western plainchant can be explained by anyone who…"

"Signor Ricossa, First of all, thank you for posting your singing of all those office chants. It is good that you brought your examples to the attention of the group because the difficulty with the examples is that a vocal repercussion is a form of…"

Alasdair Codona replied to Fyodor N's discussion Rhythm, Meter and Tempo of Gregorian Chant according to Jan van Biezen
"Much of the liquescent issue with three note groupings (where the first two notes are short) relates to the lack, in the first place, of actual signs that would indicate a liquescence but that can only be interpreted as representing three pitch…"

"A Scottish snap is most associated with turning the rhythms of reels into the rhythms of Strathspey reels so I have uploaded seven JPEG files containing copies of the pages of Margit Toth's transcription of the hymn of the Trisagion on the…"
