Gallican Chant

   Chant sung in Christian churches in the Frankish kingdom before the Carolingian order to unify liturgies in the empire by imposing the Roman rite along with its Gregorian chant. No Gallican chant book has survived; the small repertory is known through individual surviving chants in other traditions and identified by textual and musical features, the most noticeable of which is perhaps the use of two different recitation tones for the two halves of a psalm verse.
