Kenneth Levy, RIP

From Ted Krasnicki:

I received word that the influential chant scholar emeritus of Princeton, Kenneth Levy, author of various articles and books on chant, died on Friday. A well known but controversial theory of his was the claim that musical notation for the Franks already existed by the year 800. A chant archive is named after him. Requiescat in pace.
