Christian paraliturgical compositions dating from the 12th and 13th centuries from Europe, monophonic or polyphonic, that show a wide variety of texts and musical forms. Their liturgical function, if any, remains obscure, although in The Play of Daniel, they are processional songs. The conductus simplex is homorhythmic with syllabic text-setting; the embellished form includes interpolated melismatic passages.
