AP 96 - Solemn Sung Qurbana in Syriac at Irinjalakkuda.

The solemn celebration of Qurbana in Syriac on this video is a loving tribute of a son, Babu Lonappan, to his father, Mangalathuparampil Pyloth Lonappan, who deeply cherished the Syriac heritage of the Syro Malabar Church. Babu Lonappan took a remarkable decision to observe the customary 40th – day of demise by celebrating a solemn Qurbana in Syriac at his native parish, the St. Thomas Cathedral Church at Irinjalakkuda. The Cathedral Vicar, Fr. Antu Alappadan, agreed to the idea.

AP 94 - Meera Mary Jacob, singing a Syriac Chant.

This is an endearing video clip that sheds light on a four-year-old’s cognitive process in absorbing the melody and text of a chant. At home in Aldie, in northern Virginia, USA, Meera Mary Jacob kept a close watch on her dad, Alex Jacob, practicing the famous Syriac chant, Qandisa alaha.....

Sagdīnan mār Transliteration: Sagdīnan mār lālāhūsākh Walnāšūākh d’lāpūlāga Translation: We adore, my Lord, your inseparable divinity and humanity. Or We adore you, my Lord, in your divinity and humanity without doubt.......


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.
