Antiphon texts in Latin."Processions formed an essential part of the presentation of liturgical ceremonies during the Middle Ages. They marked the openings and closings of services and the ritual movement from place to place within the church as the ceremony required that specific actions occur at a specific location. Processions always received musical accompaniment. This edition assembles the processional chants that served as the background to these liturgical movements from repertories that originated across the Latin West primarily during the eleventh and twelfth centuries, and presents them in a modern, critical edition with full commentary. It includes representative examples from the Aquitanian, Beneventan, Italian, Spanish, Nonantolan, Roman and northern French repertories, as well as those from German-speaking lands and the Pontificale Romano-Germanicum. In the Introduction, Clyde W. Brockett offers full discussion of the sources, the generic limits of the repertory and the modal orientation of the melodies."--Introduction and critical matter in English.Chant notation on five-line staff.Includes bibliographical references (pages lii-lix) and indexes.
