During the Syriac era, talented priests with the help of local choirs designed the performance practice of chants. The use of music notation, Indian or Western, was not prevalent. People seemed to have appreciated the expertise of celebrants and choirs in improvising existing melodies. Fr. Probus Perumalil, CMI was a celebrated singer of Syriac chants. He participated in the recording for the first commercial CD of Syriac Chants (PAN records, Netherlands, 2002). Fr. Probus made a private recording of the solemn Qurbana at my request. This recording has become a musical treasure; it sheds light on the musical practices of a particular period in the history of liturgy and music in India. We are posting several similar segments to help future scholars to make a comparative study of particular chants. We hope these videos will motivate prospective researchers to take Christian music in India a worthwhile topic of study.
