Gregorian Chant exhibits the following characteristics?

Gregorian chant is a corpus (or large collection) of music, instead of an individual style. As such, different chants will have different characteristics. Despite this, there are several unique traits to Gregorian chants that differentiate them from other types of music. Gregorian chant is monophonic meaning there is only one voice and no harmony. It has free rhythm, meaning that while it has the natural rhytm of the prose speech in which it is written, it does not have metrical rhythm like many other songs - it's missing a repeating beat. Gregorian chant is often sung a capella, without musical accompaniment, but the last few centuries of Gregorian chant introduced the use of organs into the music. Lastly, Gregorian chant is a sung prayer. It is not a performance but just another way of praying.
