What is the orign1 of the so-called Gregorian Chant? That is the question asked by Dickinson in his splendid monograph on music in the Western Church. He himself interestingly expounds his question: "There is hardly a more interesting question in the whole history of music; for this chant is the basis of the whole magnificent structure of medieval church song and, in a certain sense of all modern music, and it can be traced back unbroken to the earliest years of the Christian Church. the most persistent and fruitful form of art that the modem world has known."
