English choir of St. Joseph's Syro Malabar church, Houston, Texas. Christmas Eve of 2023

Here is the video of the full interview with an erudite scholar of Syro Malabar liturgy, who is deeply involved in the liturgical renewal of the Syro Malabar Church. As president of Paursthya Vidya Pitam, Fr. Pauly Maniyattu continues to form a new generation of seminarians who can emerge as informed leaders of the Syro Malabar Church. Fr. Maniyattu's activities include supervision of a Malayalam translation of the Syriac, psitha Bible. Fr. Maniyattu presents several examples of the uniqueness of Psitha Bible. These are valuable contributions not only to Syro Malabar Church but also Catholic Church in Inda. The future seminarians and students of the Catholic religion will benefit greatly from this insightful conversation in the coming years. We are happy to make this video available in our Digital Library.
We are grateful to Dr. Pauly Maniyattu for granting the interview to our channel and to Fr. Varghese Mattam for making the interview possible. We are also grateful to Joseph Kurian Palackal for volunteering his service to videograph the interview. May God bless them.

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.
