RJC on Gregorian Chant

"Prayer through chant is the food we eat and the air we breathe. Chant doesn’t truly need (although it deserves) the classification of “pride of place.” This is because it is a natural reality with or without that moniker. Chant is intrinsically Roman Catholic music. Gregorian chant unites us and is the most universal way of expressing shared truths— those things that we share as members of the universal Church and as believers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ."
