Elba Gregorian chants 2017

It is December 8, 2017. You are in San Piero in Campo, a small village in the municipality of Campo nell’Elba. You have just heard the fascinating, charming history of the Campese Middle Ages, told at the gallery Don Milani. Once you are out, stay in the church square. Because magic continues in the church of San Niccolajo. Where, at 9.30 pm, the Gregorian singing concert begins.


Gregorian chants

It is a very ancient musical genre, elaborated and codified since the eighth century. It combines ancient Roman song and Gallic song. It must be strictly sung a cappella (so without musical accompaniment) from a chorus of white or masculine voices. The liturgical text sung is in Latin.
