Gallican Chant – Christian music of the early medieval Gaul. Charlemagne suppressed this form when he invaded and attempted to replace it with Roman chant (different than the Romans learning their forms from the Greek, right? It must have been a strange change of pace for them, haha). However, Gallican chant survived, with at least 50 chants surviving to this day. One of the things that sets it apart from other chants of its’ time is its length.
