AP 239 - Qambel Maran, കമ്പെൽ മാറൻ: Syriac Chant by Fr. Paul Kodamullil.

We are glad to present another recording of a unique chant from the melodic repertory of the Syro Malabar Church. The singer is Fr. Paul Kodamullil, who was a member of the Diocese of Kothamangalam in the Idukki district of Kerala. Melodies of Syriac chants mainly existed in oral tradition. For that reason, individual variations were inevitable.

Our Mission

Christian Musicological Society of India is an international forum for interdisciplinary research, 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 researches will draw attention to the lesser known aspects of India in connection with the rest of the world.
