Musical Monday: The Gregorians

Gregorians - awesome shit




From Wikipedia:
Although Gregorian chant supplanted or marginalized the other indigenous plainchant traditions of the Christian West to become the official music of the Christian liturgy, Ambrosian chant still continues in use in Milan, and there are musicologists exploring both that and the Mozarabic chant of Christian Spain.

I find that highly amusing, since normally the only displacement of indigenous anything is in the context of things like African bees displacing local quiet bees, or kudzu overrunning the Southern United States and shit like that.
