Sarum Chant

   Chant associated with the Sarum use of the Roman Catholic rite, originating in the secular chapter of the Cathedral Church at Salisbury, England, and spreading through the British isles from the 13th century until the Reformation. Most of the proper melodies match closely those of the Roman rite, i.e., Gregorian chant and its accretions. However, the expanse of the Salisbury Cathedral encouraged a number of elaborate and original processional chants. Much English polyphony uses texts and melodies of Sarum chant.
