Qambel māran (Receive O our Lord)
|CMSI Ref Number||101-0014|
|Title||Qambel māran (Receive O our Lord)|
|Category||Chants from the Services for the Dead|
|Sub Category||Madrāśā (Didactic chant)|
|Liturgical Context||Qurbānā and Hours of Syriac churches.|
This madrāśā (didactic chant) from the short form of the Office for the Dead is sung in a solo-group format in which the celebrant sings the verses and the congregation repeats the first stanza as a refrain. Technically, the group is singing in ‘unison’, however, individual differences in the manner, extent, and place of subtle ornamentations are evident. Such differences are acceptable and even appreciated. Fr. Abel Periyappuram, CMI (1920-2001) played a significant role in the transition of the Syriac liturgy to Malayalam in the 1960s. His translations, especially of the chant texts of the liturgy of the Hours and funeral services, set to their original Syriac melodies, facilitated the continuity of this music tradition in South India.

Receive, O Lord, this offering, Which thy servant offers with faith
And a pure heart, into the heaven above.
Like the offering of the patriarchs, Noah,
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and the chaste Joseph.
Like the offering which the apostles offered In the cenacle, let it enter before thee,
And let it be acceptable in thy kingdom.
