The following Text is from Wikipedia - the free encyclopaedia.

Beneventan Chant is a Liturgical Plainchant repertory of The Roman Catholic Church, used primarily in the orbit of the Southern Italian Ecclesiastical centres of Benevento and Monte Cassino. It is distinct from Gregorian Chant and related to Ambrosian Chant.

It was officially supplanted by the Gregorian Chant of The Roman Rite in the 11th-Century, although a few Beneventan Chants of local interest remained in use.

During the Lombard occupation of the 7th-Century A.D. and 8th-Century A.D., a distinctive Liturgical Rite and Plainchant Tradition developed in Benevento. It included Feasts of special local importance, such as The Holy Twelve Brothers of Benevento.

At the time, it was called Cantus Ambrosianus (Ambrosian Chant), although it is a separate Plainchant Tradition from The Chant of Milan, which we call Ambrosian Chant. The common use of the name Cantus Ambrosianus, the common influence of The Lombards in both Benevento and Milan, and musical similarities between the two Liturgies and Chant Traditions, suggest a Lombard influence in the origins of Beneventan Chant.
