The modern liturgical movement owes a great debt to Solesmes monk Dom
Eugène Cardine (1905-1988), whose tireless research in the ancient
manuscripts uncovered the elusice secrets of Gregorian Rhythm, thus
revealing some of the original pristine beauty of Gregorian chant. In this
volume, Dom Cardine sums up the origin, decline and restoration of the
chant, and challenges researchers to continue his work.
