Should You Be Using Oversized Chant Posters?

Peter A. Kwasniewski, Professor of Theology and Philosophy and Instructor in Music History and Theory at Wyoming Catholic College, uses oversized editions of the chant for his schola. Doing this keeps the singers' heads out of the book, corrects the posture, and yields a better sound. No more hiding inside pages! In a wonderful way, this also recreates the medieval practice of singing from the one edition owned by the parish or monastery.

He made these posters by sending a file to a local printer. It was as simple as that. Now he keeps them in a giant binder and pulls them out as necessary.
