|World Festival of Sacred Music
Los Angeles (WFSM-LA)
Since 1999, this festival has been promoted and made possible by a powerful coalition of arts, faith, interfaith, cultural, community, and environmental groups. It is the largest city-wide Festival in Los Angeles. Taking place each year in September and October, it offers approxiamtely forty-three events during the course of sixteen days, in venues across the entire Los Angeles region.
Gregorian chant is the central tradition of Western plain chant, a form of monophonic, unaccompanied sacred song of the Roman Catholic Church. This well-known form of chant developed mainly in the Frankish lands of western and central Europe during the 9th and 10th centuries, with later additions and redactions. Although popular legend credits Pope St. Gregory the Great with inventing Gregorian chant, scholars believe that it arose from a later Carolingian synthesis of Roman and Gallican chant.
