Books on Chant Accompaniment

Jeff Ostrowski has a superb collection of scanned books on Gregorian Chant which are available for free download to all. You will find the St Jean de Lalande Library of Rare Books at the Corpus Christi Watershed. This is an amazing resource which I am sure will be very useful for choir directors and singers.

In particular, there are a large number of Chant accompaniments available there. One of the main reasons that Chant sometimes fails to take off in parishes is a lack of written chant accompaniments. This collection goes some way to address that problem, and I know that it is one area which Musica Sacra Scotland hopes to address on National Music Day.
