I recently came across this video on Youtube.

Syro Malabar Qurbana Liturgical Chant Style

Does someone know if there are two (or more) different "styles" of the Syro Malabar liturgy? Or is this some other kind of service/mass?

It sounds like what is described as the "Traditional" or "Classical" style. The 'modern' styles are more neo-Indianized.

That Eparchy, and that parish in particular are very Eastern. A rare gem even among Syro-Malabar Traditionalists.

Of course, in the course of further delatinization, it has Byzantinized a bit.

Thanks Michael_Thoma.

Is this 'modern' style the most widely used today? And would you be able to venture a guess as to the percentage that uses one style over the other?

I had no idea that there were liturgical 'traditionalists' among the Syro Malabar. Which eparchy is this?

Is the Syro-Malabar Qurbana ever celebrated acapella? Every video I have seen they use those synthesizers which I believe takes away from the beauty of the chant.
