Chant sources from the early Christian years were based on French, German and Italian models, but the imported repertory was soon enhanced in two ways—by adding ornamental flourishes in a native style to existing works, and by composing entirely new works, usually for special Hungarian feasts or liturgical practices. Elements of foreign notations were blended together, and a specifically Hungarian chant notation eventually emerged. Hungarian plainchant style is characterized by wide intervallic leaps, pentatonic tendencies and extended cadences. These traits are shared to some degree by chant dialects from many German and Bohemian areas, but the Hungarian repertoire has a flavor all its own.
