Beneventan chant

Back | Home | Up | Next

Beneventan chant is a liturgical plainchant repertory of the Roman Catholic Church, used primarily in the orbit of the southern Italian ecclesiastical centers of Benevento and Montecassino, distinct from Gregorian chant and closely related to Ambrosian chant. It was officially supplanted by the Gregorian chant of the Roman rite in the 11th century, although traces remain.
