Visualizing the Unseen: Gregorian Chant and the Arts 

Robert Benson, Emeritus Professor, Department of Architecture, College of Creative Arts 

Although sung music was always important to Christian spirituality in worship and monastic life, in the early middle ages, chant and other music could only be learned by rote. The invention of musical notation made what had only been heard visible and readable. This permitted Gregorian chant to become one of the driving forces in the arts of painting, metalwork, sculpture and architecture where the unseen was also given visual expression.
