Recto tono

Recto tono is a Latin phrase used in the context of church liturgy and music. Recto tono has been described as "the simplest form of church music, a reciting tone. One note held for the length of a phrase." [1] It literally means "straight" or "uniform" tone. In liturgical chanting, recto tono is used to recite without embellishment or elaborate singing. [2]
