An excellent book which covers a wide range of musical styles though focus's mainly on a basic type of chanting. She builds up your ability with simple exercises and getting used to doing simple chanting with step up and step down chants. Then progresses to learning to read chant notation which includes learning about gregorian. The final chapters cover alternative styles such as Taize and Iona Chanting. The CD that comes with it is helpful but very basic. For getting a better feel of the chanting I would suggest her audio cd book "Singing the Psalms" which is still available from Amazon. The 1st cd has good examples and the 4th cd at the end is incredible. Though all the cd's cover some of the same ground that this book does it really is an essential companion to this book. ( )
