The demise of the Filipino chant books

We will be posting some general observations on the great chant books in the Philippine archipelago, attempting along the way to document how they might have reached their current status of disuse and of being a sad museum staple, and their varying status of disrepair and completeness.

We shall be prefacing these posts with this mark

which is a warning that they contain personal opinions.

The posts will be divided into parts:

I. Chant in the Catholic world
II. Sacred music in Catholic Philippines
III. Gregorian Restoration
IV. Desuetude
V. Present studies

We will be updating this post to include links to the individual posts themselves.
