Notes

Slothak Avoon. SMITHA DOLPHI. Chaldean Syrian Church of the East, India.

This particular song is the common patrimony of the Syro Malabar Church and the Chaldean Syrian Church of the East, India. Surprisingly, the melody that Smitha sings is the same as the melody that we hear in the Syro Malabar Church. It means that the two churches shared melodies and musical practices before they parted ways and decided to establish their separate identities.. We have a few samples from the Syro Malabar Church on the editing table. Once they are ready, the recordings will be useful for comparative musicology as well as for music ecumenism. We are grateful to Wilson Muriyadan for introducing Smitha Dolphi to us.
