A Digital Library of Christian Music, Arts and Literature of India

Christian Musicological Society of India is an international forum for interdisciplinary discussion, and dissemination of knowledge, on the music, art and dance of about thirty million Christians in India, who belong to a diverse set of communities and linguistic groups and follow a variety of liturgical traditions some of which date back to the early Christian era. Founded in 1999 by Dr. Joseph J. Palackal CMI, the Society hopes that such discussions will draw attention to the lesser known aspects of India in connection with the rest of the world.
