"Pagre(h) Damsiha" at First Communion. St Jude Syro Malabar Catholic Church, USA
In this video, for the first time in America, we see First Communion children singing the Anthem of the Mysteries, “Pagre(h) damsiha” the body of the Misiha, “wadme yaqira,” and the precious blood. This happened at St. Jude’s Syro Malabar Catholic Church in Northern Virginia (http://www.thecmsindia.org/pagre-dama...). As in the previous years, the children also sang the famous Christological hymn, “Sagdinan Mar”(http://www.thecmsindia.org/sagdinan-mar). The two hymns combined to cover the entire catechism that the First Communion children should know. In this particular celebration, we hear Bishop Jacob Angadiath, the celebrant, singing with the children. Probably, the Bishop could not contain his joy listening to the children. St. Jude’s Church has been a pioneer in introducing Syriac chants to children. Felix Simon, the co-founder of the Aramaic Project, took the initiative to start a conversation on the subject in 2013, soon after the celebration of the bilingual Qurbana (English-Syriac) at the National Shrine and Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. (see Aramaic Project-65 https://youtu.be/Iv1PkmTUITA). Ever since, First Communion Qurbana at St. Jude’s included Syriac chants. The adults have come to expect it, and they also appreciate the efforts and enthusiasm of the children. We hope the children will continue keep up their interest in the Syriac tradition of their mother church, and other parishes will take their lead. These actions will change the religious soundscape of America. God bless the children. More details on these chants are available on our digital Encyclopedia of Syriac Chants
