Among the excellences published by Tallone Editore, the Gregorian Chant Victimae Paschals is a small exquisite jewel among many prestigious editions. Composed by hand in movable type, stamped with a typographic press and printed on pure cotton Umbria paper, specially set up by hand at the Fabriano Paper Museum. As with other Tallone printed products, this Gregorian Chant is the result of highly skilled craftsmanship, exercised on quality raw materials using antique typographic techniques. The Latin text treats the theme of the Passion of Christ, in a heartfelt duel between life and death. It was hand set in Garaldus characters, cast by Nebiolo of Turin. The musical notes, on the other hand, were printed by hand-engraved punches, applied by Théodore Beaudoire and cast in Paris by Debemy in the nineteenth century.
