Liturgies pré-grégoriennes ou alternatives 

Liturgy before gregorian chant and in parallel traditions

Before the liturgical music of the Roman Catholic Church became definitively codified and "standardised" in the form later named Gregorian chant (in reference to Pope Gregory I, during whose papacy much of it was collected), parallel liturgical traditions proliferated in the post-Roman Christian Europe until the ninth century, and they have left a few tantalising traces behind, both notational and literary: it is this area of study of the sources of Western liturgical chant that has attracted researchers and musicians alike, starting with Marcel Pérès at the head of the Ensemble Organum.
