Notes

Syriac and Malayalam versions of Laika Ezal/ ewideyolikkum Karthawe Nin.

Fr. Abel Periyappuram, CMI (1920-2001) sings Syriac and Malayalam versions of Model Melody, Laika Ezal Min Ruhak.

Note: Fortunately, Fr. Abel left us a great legacy of audio recordings of the Syriac and Malayalam versions of the model melodies (Res Qala) in his voice. The recordings took place at three different locations and occasions. The first recording took place in 1997. This was at my request. I needed those melodies for my doctoral dissertation. All the recordings are in our library.

See:

Aramaic project-11 (Kochi, December 1997) https://youtu.be/SKFUdi8_G1k ; Aramaic Project-12 (New York 22 July 1998) https://youtu.be/WAgiy8eVRw0 ; Aramaic Project-13 (Kochi 23 August 2001) https://youtu.be/4S3QAPWH-PY; Aramaic Project-14 (New York 20 September 1997) https://youtu.be/W0ANNKMTJq0

The first recording took place in 1997. This was at my request. I needed those melodies for my doctoral dissertation. Chapter VI, Model Melodies of the Syro Malabar Church, is based on Fr. Abel's version of the model melodies. On 27 August 1999, Fr. Abel was kind enough to participate in the recording of selected Syriac chants for the first commercial release of an audio CD of Syriac chants from India (Qambel Maran: Syriac Chants from South India, PAN Records, Netherlands, 2002 http://www.thecmsindia.org/researches...). The title chant in the CD is in Fr. Abel’s voice. We also have copies of the Syriac chants in the Malayalam script (http://www.thecmsindia.org/StaticFile...) chants in Malayalam in the handwriting of Fr. Abel. Fr. Abel wrote down the texts of the chant on scrap paper and recorded (see Aramaic Project-11) the chants using those manuscripts.
