Il canto gregoriano: uniformità versus pluralità - di Angelo Corno

SOMMARIO: 1. Il repertorio autentico - 2. La questione gregoriana - 3. Cenni sulla notazione sangallese - 4. La restaurazione gregoriana.

Gregorian chant: uniformity versus plurality 

ABSTRACT: From the earliest literary sources, Gregorian chant appears as the result of a great reflection on the sacred texts in an organic and unitary project that covers the entire liturgical year. To each celebration are addressed properly a text and a melody in a precise and unchangeable form because every piece represents a source of references that are part of a rigorous and codified plan. The textual and melodic unity of the Gregorian repertoire, realized in the Carolingian era through a process of hybridization between the ancient Roman chant and the Gallican chant, became a stabilizing factor in the political and religious unification of Europe in the ninth century, determining the end of liturgical regionalism. The wholeness of the repertoire is confirmed by the primitive musical notation, which fixes on parchment a previous oral tradition originating from a common matrix. The long period of decadence that had compromised the intelligibility of the original monody was followed by the colossal work of Solesmes, which allowed the reconstruction in its beauty and integrity. The subsequent 'typical editions' of Gregorian chant were declared normative and pointed to by Pio X as an ultimate pattern for the whole Church.

A ‘Structural’ Reading of “Praedicate Evangelium”

ABSTRACT: The article examines the (indirect and limited) constitutional value of the reform of the Roman Curia. The basic framework of Praedicate Evangelium is connected to the missionary impulse instilled by pontificate of Francis in the shared and plural structure of universality. The service of the Curia to the Church and to the world is founded upon its instrumental institutional character and on the maximum possible distribution of and participation in the goods of communion. Beyond the regulative aspects, this normative intervention develops various vectors and features of organization. At the institutional level, the vicarious dimension of power, the organic cooperation between the curial institutions and the decentralizing co-responsibility in the role of the episcopacy emerge. At the personal level, there is the encouragement of professional roles, of laity, of pastorality and spirituality, of the universality, and of the temporary nature of the offices. The criteria of rationality and functionality synthesize the aspiration to revise the central government. The reform of the Curia denotes a significant passage of the synodal way of the Church, which provides reasons for certain ecclesiological and speculative analysis, as well as for the perfection of canonical knowledge from a constitutional viewpoint.
