Gregorian Chant,
Modes, and Music
of the Middle Ages


An introduction and workshop on Gregorian Chant was held at the beautiful setting of Saint Leo Abbey. Participants were provided information on the history, notation and music of the Gregorian Chant era. Participants will learn and perform actual selections from Gregorian Chant literature. This was a Singing workshop, our goal is for all participants to learn to sing several Gregorian chants.

This is an experiential workshop taking us through Gregorian Chant history, the value of the modes found within them, as well as the communal sound of our voices together.

Janet Kato will be presenting information and chants from Hildegard von Bingen.

Dennis Devine - provided examples of modes in world music and chants
throughout the world.


Set in the pastoral hills of St. Leo, Florida and vibrant dome of St. Leo Abbey you will experience amidst the history of the Benedictine Community, the long known beauty and devotion of Gregorian Chant for your personal or professional use.
