I know next to nothing about Chant other than the fact that I do enjoy listening to it from time to time. The only contribution that I can make is this offering from the Tallis Scholars with a particular type of Chant....

In addition to plainchant, this CD also includes early polyphonic forms such as conductus, organum, etc.--music attributed to Leonin and Perotin. However, it is very captivating and beautiful, especially with the vast acoustic of the church. I highly recommend:

There is a decent amount of uploads of full CDs of Greek monastic choirs of Mount Athos on youtube. Actuall CDs are generally difficult to find, and youtube sound is quite decent. These are all studio recordings I think.

This 11th Century Christmas mass reconstruction by ensemble organum is turning into a favourite. It's very austere - OVPP I think, so max four voices, even in the monophonic chant, and  no instruments. But the polyphonic music is far from austere!

It was their second  album, the first one being Christmas music again, a century later, and this time from not from Paris but from Limoges



For some reason I just can't explain, this one has had less of an impact on me, apart from one song which is a real knockout - called O homo coruit.

In the orthodox liturgy, the use of musical instruments is forbidden.  There are two exceptions: the Armenian orthodox church tolerates a modest use of the organ and the the Ethiopian church uses drums.  Because of the absence of instruments, the chorus takes the role and this can lead to some pretty elaborate polyphony.  In some orthodox liturgies, there can be solo voices, giving the upper melodic line.  This is the case in the orthodox music from the adriatic (mostly Serbian) which I actually bought (see below).  The melodic line is without any vibrato and blends very well with the chorus.  In the recordings of St John Chrysostom liturgies that I have, this upper melodic line is absent, and the polyphony develops between the different choruses.  This is also the case in the examples posted by Draško.

Anyway Divna Ljudojevic voice is that of an angel and the work she has been doing with the Melodi and the dialogos ensembles is admirable.  Although it is religious,  this music is absolutely captivating, and when I am listening no other activities can induce any letdown of attention. Amazing.

He is a youtube portion of this CD.  Its really worth it
