St. Gregory the Great Chanters

St. Gregory the Great was the first pope to collect into one uniform whole the previously scattered and varying chants of the Liturgy. For the special religious functions celebrated by the Pope with the Roman Clergy in the Station Churches, he arranged and fixed the Liturgy in the Liber Antiphonarius. To better carry out his reform he founded a schola cantorum in Rome, in which he himself taught. From this school went forth teachers of the Roman Liturgical Chant to England with St. Augustin in 596 A.D. -Rev. F.X. Haberl
