Two Approaches to Chant

This video nicely displays two very different approaches to singing chant. The first is using the traditional edition and the traditional approach. The second uses the new edition of the Graduale Novum and the so-called rhetorical method of singing chant. I think might be the first video I've seen to directly compare the two. No doubt that partisans of one approach over the other will say that the singing is not as it should be, but there is enough here to get the sense. h/t euoeae
