A study of medieval monophonic music. The text focuses on its movement away from the concept of chants as products and towards the idea of chants as processes. The essays are loosely connected through their bearing on one or more of three themes: the role of orality in the transmission of chants circa 700-1400; varying degrees of stability or instability in the transmission of chant; and the role of the formula in the construction of chant.
