With an introduction by Peter Carey I suppose it is crazy. I don't know. I don't even care. But that girl needs somebody . . . And you old solitary bastards need somebody too. Somebody or something besides an old red cow to care about and worry over. Set in Kent Haruf's fictional landscape of Holt County, Colorado, Plainsong is a story of simple lives told with extraordinary empathy. Tom Guthrie is struggling to bring up his two young sons alone and, in the same town, school girl Victoria Roubideaux is pregnant and homeless. Whilst Tom's boys find their way forward without their mother, brothers Harold and Raymond McPheron - gentle, solitary, gruff and unpolished - agree to take Victoria in, unaware that their lives will change forever. A novel of haunting beauty from one of America's greatest writers of our time, Plainsong is an undeniable classic that explores the grace and hope of every human life and mankind's infinity capacity for love.

Excerpt from The Elements of Plainsong: Compiled From a Series of Lectures, Delivered Before the Members of the Plainsong Mediæval Music Society Plate I. - Leaf from a combined Antiphonal and Gradual of the Ambrosian Use of the 11th century. British Museum. Add. MSS. 34,209. Octavo. The MS. contains the Pars œstivalis and Pars vernalis i.e. from Advent to Easter with the exception of 5 leaves lost at the beginning and 1 after f. 22. The passage selected is taken from the 2nd Sunday in Advent and contains the Psalmellus "A summo cœlo" to a melody which is apparently the origin of the Gregorian Gradual to the same words. The notes throughout the MS. are finely written on a staff of three lines, which are scratched on the vellum, with an additional line occasionally inserted between two of the original ones. All the letters from a to g are used in turn as signatures, the f line being coloured red, the c yellow and, occasionally, the b green. Plate II. - Leaf from the Winchester Ethelred Troper of the 10th century. Bodleian Library - Bodley 775. Octavo. At the fifth line begins the Kyrie Jesu Redemptor, and at the ninth the Kyrie, Rex Splendens. Plate III. - Leaf from a Gradual of the 12th century from S. Alban's Abbey. British Mus. - 2 B iv. Octavo. The page selected shows the melody of Kyrie Rex splendens. Plate IV. - Leaf from a Psalter with Antiphons of the early 14th century. British Museum - Arundel 83. Folio. The volume is a fine example of English Illumination, and was apparently written for a member of the Royal Family. It afterwards came into the possession of the Howard family, probably through John Fox, whose name is on the flyleaf, and who was tutor in 1546 to Thomas Howard, afterwards 4th Duke of Norfolk.

A nameless, ambitionless office worker finds his small apartment gradually invaded by three other people: all younger than himself, but seemingly no less adrift. The year is 1986, and the strange communal life of this foursome, extending over half a year, from the end of winter to midsummer, makes up the plot, such as it is, of Plainsong, as this ersatz family finds itself growing closer, and life continues—quietly—around them. Part of the generation that grew to prominence following the success of baby boomers like Haruki Murakami, Kazushi Hosaka's work chronicles the small moments, the moments without conflict, that most novels work to elide. His characters talk, work, exist; their story is one where the tiniest occurrence takes on the proportions of a grand drama.

From at least the eighth century and for about a thousand years the repertory of music now known as Gregorian chant, or plainsong, formed the largest body of written music, and was the most frequently performed and the most assiduously studied music in Western civilisation. It lay at the root of all instruction in practical music, and in some sense was at the core of the enormous portion of notated music that survives today. But plainsong did not follow rigid conventions. It seems increasingly clear that, whatever may have been intended with respect to uniformity and tradition, the practice of plainsong varied considerably within time and place. It is just this variation, this living quality of plainsong, that these essays address. In addition, much new information is made available on the study of local rites and practices, and on the liturgical matrix of important polyphonic repertories. The contributors - leading scholars in their field - have sought information from a wide variety of areas: liturgy, architecture, art history, secular and ecclesiastical history, and hagiography, as a step towards reassembling the fragments of cultural history into the rich mosaic from which they came.
