Musica Sacra Forum on Breathing and Chant

Many of our readers likely know that the Chant Café is one of three sister websites, including New Liturgical Movement and Musica Sacra. Musica Sacra has a substantial main site that offers vast resources and links, including this remarkable library, to help local musicians do their work well, and a thriving forum that is searchable, so that the answers to all sorts of interesting questions are “on file” and right at hand.

This week a very interesting question has arisen on the Musica Sacra Forum about breathing during chant. As often happens in these discussions, a single question quickly became a complex of related questions.

For anyone involved in singing chant–or singing at all–you might like to take a look.
