The book will contain a tutorial on how to sing, and, in particular, some explanation of the four-line staff.
Here is our draft version of the introduction as it stands right now.
- Does it provide enough explanation of propers?
- Will a musician who reads modern notes understand chant notation from this?
- What about a person who doesn't read music at all? Can they get what they need from this?
- Have we covered enough to get going singing the SEP?
It's my own view that every chant book produced today needs this type of explanation. i don't mind saying that I find the absence of such a tutorial in Ignatius's Compline book to be a problem.
