Notes

Syriac chants during the wedding at Dallas, USA: Denny & Neena

This video is yet another example of how young Syro Malabar Catholics, who are born and raised in the USA. Denny and Neena felt comfortable in incorporating three Syriac chants into the wedding ceremony. The choir members, under the leadership of Jones Kalarickal, was had already mastered these songs. The choir also did something innovative. They sand the Holy Holy Holy in Syriac. The celebrant sang his part in Malayalam. This is the first time we hear a bilingual Holy. The transition from Malayalam to Syriac sounded smooth. Such bold experiments have far-reaching effects in reclaiming the Syriac heritage. Earlier, Tensen Kalarickal made history by organizing a complete Syriac Qurbana with the help of this choir in the Syro Malabar Cathedral in Chicago (see Aramaic Project-100.) The congregations in the Chicago-Dallas areas are getting used to the sounds and melodies in Syriac. We are grateful to Tensen Kalarickal and his team in taking the initiative.
