Today, September 7, 2023, is the tenth anniversary of a historic event at the National Shrine and Basilica in the capital city of America. For the first time, the English version of the solemn sung Qurbana of the Syro Malabar Church took place at the National Shrine with Major Archbishop George Cardinal Alancherry as the celebrant. I oversaw the music part of the celebration. With the Cardinal’s permission, I included two Syriac chants in the celebration. The choir comprised 124 young people from the Syro Malabar Communities in America. This was the first time the Syro Malabar youth got acquainted with the Syriac chant tradition. They took their experience to the local parishes. Today, the Trisagion is part of the Qurbana of Syro Malabar communities across America. The revised music notation book of the Qurbana in English that the Chicago diocese published in 2015 includes two Syriac chants that we sang at the National Shrine. The seed that was planted in 2013 is growing fast. The idea of a bilingual Qurbana in the vernacular and Syriac is gaining momentum among the expatriate Syro Malabar communities worldwide. It all started here in the USA; let us watch the video.
