Vocal Genres OpenBUCS
Alright! This is part two ofour discussion about genres. We're talking aboutvocal genres now. We're going to take these in kind of a chronologicalorder so that you can see how they build on one another. So the oldest music that we knowabout for singers is called 'Gregorian Chant.' It's named after Pope Gregory, not theguy who wrote it all but he was the one who said lets organize it all byputting it in a book so we can make some sense out of it, so, we call itafter him, 'Gregorian Chant.'
This is music from the Catholic Church. It's basically everybody sing the melody,not very exciting and frankly in real life you're probablynot going to hear it very much although there has been a remarkable popularity of recordings of GregorianChant over the last ten years or so. I don't know if it's becauseGregorian Chant is very relaxing, you know it's not busy, it'sjust this lovely line of music being
sung by men, and maybe people just need that sort ofsoothing sound in their lives when things are sort of tough. So, the recordings have been very popular, but you're not going to go to a concert and hear Gregorian Chant.It's just not going to happen. You might however if you go to aCatholic Church that still does the traditional Latin Liturgy;
you might have the opportunity to hearthe Gregorian Chant done the way that it was in the past and we'lltalk about the importance of that music in terms of some other things when wetalk about music at that time period. So, we have all these different chants and together, we put them together and we end up with
a mass. So when we talk about the Catholic Mass,really all that is is a collection of Gregorian Chant plus scripture readings and whatever sermons and all the other bitsthat you would think of as being part of a church service. So Gregorian Chant. put them all together.you get a mass.
There's a special type of mass for thedead which is called the requiem mass, and its again taking GregorianChant, put them all together, but it has some differences from the regular servicebecause obviously it's a service for the dead. So we'll talk about that in moredetail later too! But you need to know, Gregorian Chant,makes up mass, and the requiem mass. So that's the oldeststuff that we know about. Now there are lots of popular kinds ofstyles of vocal music that we've always
