He united the different liturgical schools and the chants with which the christians celebrated their religious acts (Galician liturgies, Ambrosian liturgies, Byzantine liturgies and Mozarabic liturgies). In his Antifonario the Gregorian Chant was codified, organized and regulated, and henceforth became the official chant of the Catholic Church. Conscious that one of the difficulties in transmission and storage of music was the lack of proper musical notation, St. Gregory created the chant schools (scholae cantorum). In these schools teenagers were educated to be the custodians of the musical traditions of liturgical music. These measures, which tradition attributes to St. Gregory, contributed to dignify the music. Music theory was taught in the teachings of the trivium and quadrivium.

Hispanic liturgy

In the first ages, the spanish medieval music received two influences: * Hebrew-influence. Is taken the hebrew mode based on long melismas and the importance of singing in the worship. * Greco-Roman influence. Of classic world is inherited the music theory with the modal system and the ethical and educational valuation of the music expressed by Platon. The organization of the hispanic liturgy it’s dificult, because of the majority of the literal sources belong to, the oldest, to the centuries VII and VIII, even if the majority of the part of the repertory used in Hispania and the Narbonese Galia itself transmited to us in codex coming of the centuries VIII to XII, with an important number of copies made in the toledanos workshop in the century XIV, with the lost consecuence of fidelity to the musicaly notations, that the copysts didn’t know. Summary: Mozarabic Chant: Until its abolition in the late eleventh century, the Mozarabic chant represented one of the most exciting cultural events of medieval music. Its roots in the early days of Christianity and in turn in Jewish liturgy. In the mozárabe churches, the choirs sing manuscripts in form of a song. Between the manuscripts leoneses, the most celebrated is “El Antifonario de León” Have all the music for the job and the mass of the party of the lord and saints. The musical forms encountered in Mozarabic chant present a number of analogies with those of the Roman rite. For example, a comparable distinction exists between antiphonal and responsorial singing. And Mozarabic chant may be seen to make use of three styles: syllabic, neumatic and melismatic, much as in Gregorian chant. Instruments: Some instruments used for primitive rondalla were influenced by Mozarabic musical instruments of the era, including the guitar, flute, mandolin, castanets and tambourine.

Charlemagne's interest in sacred music and worry because he had to spread properly throughout his empire, has never been equaled by any civil ruler before or after. Although Charlemagne's father, Pepin, had a great care for the music removed, the activity of Carlos was much smarter and complete than his father. Charlemagne appreciated the reasons why the Church gives so much importance to music in worship besides the way it is interpreted. The key legislation elaborated on this issue point, and on any other matter relating to the liturgy, was in accordance with Roma. Tradition has it that not only took with him members of his own chapel at Rome, to learn directly from the sources, but also pleaded with Pope Adrian I in 774, to let him. The great Carlos took great pains, though not entirely successful, to prevent the city of Milan and its surroundings continue with Ambrosian Rites and melodies. Charlemagne not only made the liturgical music flourish in their own time through their domains, but laid the groundwork for the musical culture that is so ingrained now.

While Guido D'Arezzo was at school he saw how difficult that was for the singers remember the Gregorian chants and he invented a teaching so that they learn in a short period of time.This method of teaching was made famous quickly. Guido d' Arezzo has gone down in music history as one of the most important reformers of the musical notation system. He was the precursor of the pentagram, and the diatonic scale. Guido was one of the most important reformers system of musical notation. Guido´s method for remembering accurate notes more hexachord, whose nomenclature (ut or do, re, mi, fa, sol, la) extracted from the initial syllables of each hemistich hymn of John Ut intonation should be queant prophylaxis. The underlined syllables, which are the melody the first six notes of our larger scale, became later, perhaps surpassing the intentions of Guido, names and symbols of the same notes; after several centuries the "ut" became "do" and the syllable was added "if" (derived, it seems, from the initials of the two words of the last line) to indicate the seventh sound of the scale, in that melody did not appear. These are some of this works: *”Micrologus de disciplina artis musicae” *”Prologus in Antiphonarium” *”De ignoto Cantu” *”Regulae rythmicae” *”Epistola ad Michaelem”

The round arch and the barrel vault

In Architecture, the round arch is a type of arch that has a semi-circle shape. In ancient times, it was made with stone or sun-dried brick. It is the main element of vaulted architecture. It started to be employed in Mesopotamia around the year 3000 B.C. Then it was used in Etruscan Architecture, after which it was evident in Roman times. The Romans used the round arch all over the Mediterranean lands. It was commonly employed by Ancient Roman builders who relied heavily on the rounded arch to span large, open areas. Several rounded arches placed in line, end-to-end, form an arcade; such as the Roman aqueduct. The arches of half point generally took the form of a semicircle, and were made of segments of adobe, brick or stone. This image shows how a corridor consisting of many arches of half point, all equal. The Arch and its element: The voussoirs (dovelas) are the wedge that make up the arch and are characterized by their radial arrangement. The voussoirs of the ends which receive the weight of the arch, are called salmer. The inner part of a segment is called the soffit and the loin, which is not part of the construction, the backfill. The key (clave) (also known as Crown or a central dowel) is the keystone of the Center, which closes the arch. It is the last piece that is placed on the framework, completing the construction of the arc. The key tends to be of a larger size and heavier weight, and provides stability to the arc. Fascia (imposta) (or boot): is a molding or skirt above which sits an arch or vault. Sometimes it runs horizontally through the façade or the walls of the building, separating the different plants. The set of segments from the start until the key is called the kidney. The lean (enjunta), or fustian, is the part of factory that covers the top of the arc (i.e. resting on the kidneys of the arc). It is generally referred to as the factory between two successive arches. Barrel vault is called the vault formed by the displacement a semicircular arc through a longitudinal axis. The vault is used generally to cover elongated spaces, such as ships of the churches, due to its simple construction has been widely used since the times of Roman Classical architecture used also in other artistic times. The vault where generally of small size. The archaeological remains found recently at the site of Morgantina (Enna). Show that the barred vault was also used for underground constructions in Sicily during the Hellenistic times in the century III b. c, this indicates that this technical was also know by the Greeks.

Moreover, Adam has mixed this traditional monophonic composition with more esoteric form of the motet of the thirteenth century, and conducted the first experiments in secular music. The high esteem enjoyed by Adam de la Halle among his contemporaries is confirmed by the fact he was the first musician whose works were collected and copied. The rondoes of Adam de la Halle, like his other works, always sing the courtly love, often with erotic accent.

Musicians of Notre Dame wrote a decisive chapter in the history of Western music to use a system as abstract as consistent rhythmic notation, the mensurabilis music, able to control the voices more accurately than before and helps to increase substantially the number of compositions. Leonín, Perotin and other anonymous composers whose music has endured are representatives of a period of medieval music known as Ars Antiqua. During this period the motet, which is the kind of composition more frequent in the magnus Liber Organi, was born.
