I think that the composition of the styles match the features are:to. Organum: a composition of two or more voices, one of which is based on the already existing chant melody. Organum represents an early type of polyphonic music based on plainsong. In the contrast of the Gregorian chant, organum has an accompaniment.b. Gregorian chant: monophonic melodies collected by a certain pope. This song represent the central tradition of Western plainchant. It is a unaccompanied the sacred song of the Roman Catholic Church.c. Polyphony: any composition by the use of two or more independent the voices. The polyphony is the musical texture that combines melodic, rhythmic, and harmonic aspects of a musical composition.
