The Word-Music Relationship in the Gregorian and Old Roman Offertories

Abstract

Differences between Gregorian and Roman chant are especially evident in the solo verses of the offertory. The contrast becomes pronounced among offertories assigned to Lent and Paschaltide. A central distinction between offertories is the relationship between melody and text. Eight examples illustrate these differences and the relationship between the dialects. The melodies underwent further development in both dialects after their separation. The sensitivity to the content of the words is best viewed as a token of the emphasis on literacy in Frankish culture.
