Sophia Chirayil: sings Syriac chant during personal prayer
It was indeed a joy to speak to the young and talented Sophia Chirayil. Syriac chants are so dear to her heart that she includes them during her personal prayer. Sophia got acquainted with Syriac chants, when she sang with the choir for the bilingual (English/Syriac) Syro Malabar Qurbana at the National Shrine and Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, in Washington, D. C. Sophia kept up her interest and curiosity and continue to learn more about the Syriac tradition of the Syro Malabar Church. May God bless Sophia. It is our wish that more and more young people will warm up to the East Syriac tradition of the Syro Malabar Church. Sophia gives us hope.Many thanks to Sophia's Dad for video taping the interview.

There is nothing more heartening than seeing one's efforts bearing fruit and I'm sure Rev Palackal Kathanar would have felt so , interviewing Sophia Chirayil. Our only prayer is that , let a thousand flowers bloom in the garden of Aramaic heritage & Chants ! - Amal Antony - August 29, 2019
