Gregorian chant

Gregorian chant is also known as plainchant or plainsong, and is a form of monophonic, unaccompanied singing, which was developed in the Catholic church, probably during the period 1000-1400. This music was traditionally sung by monks or other male clerics, and was used during religious services.
