Founded in 1888, the Society quickly established two areas of activity: to propagate information on medieval music and to revitalize theAnglican liturgy with the riches of the plainchant of the Roman Rite.Of the two sides of the Society's activities, the scholarly and the practical, this collection represents the former. The essays reflect the founders' interest in medieval music, both monophonic and polyphonic, and, particularly, their concern with chant.
