    Musicologists have uncovered a tremendous number of documents from the period to ensure that we have a completely accurate and reliable understanding of how the music was performed.
    Since there is no written documentation, all that we know has been passed down orally from generation to generation.
    Though the original manuscripts provide the text and the notes of the melody, many questions remain concerning the actual manner of performance.
    Most musicologists have accepted the tragic fact that, because this music occurred about a millenium ago, it is completely lost to us.
