Not Menetion[edit]

Jews and Samaritans chant. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.38.211.144 (talk) 19:20, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Removed[edit]

I removed the following:

  • "Chants are a special case of rhytmic recursive repetitions reflected off symmetrical or reverse syllabic reverbations of verbiage of levels of symbolic abstrrrraction and contraction action off hope or divination, if I recall correctly reverse rhyme of their verse! The previous sentence is a chant in essence. Agquarx 23:42, 16 Feb 2005 (UTC) (definition "by" example, grok?)"

Song evolving from chant?[edit]

I'm skeptical. Can someone cite evidence for this? There was always song wile there was chant, and the earlier documented forms of European song, like the troubadour canso and the Latin cantio, didn't follow the modal system of Gregorian chant. Tropes, organa, liturgical drama, even motets "evolved" from chant, but not song. Peirigill 00:34, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

State worry about POV[edit]

Gouranga UK, please state your worry before reverting changes to the article. Have put them back for the time being. Knowledge for All 22:56, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

I have removed the statement "Chanting the Name of God is a spiritual practice that is commonly recommended by spiritually evolved souls in the current era." because I don't think it is a verifiable fact. (Even if you or I may agree with it or not) - It reads more like a personal point of view. The other change I've made is that the introductory paragraph shouldn't have a title - the article Chant is the title in this instance. I hope you can see the reasoning behind these two changes. That was why I had reverted before. Best Wishes, GourangaUK 15:31, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
