Western classical music traditionally began with plainchant, the
vocal religious practice of Roman Catholic Church. It was transmitted
by memory only until early 9th century due to non existence of its
noted form which was then arranged by the Holy Roman Emperor
Charlemagne who distributed the standardized plainchant books to
churches. Other than classical the western music forms include
popular, folk etc.
