“Beth Gazo” is Syriac and the English translation is “House of Treasures”. The hymns and tunes that Beth Gazo contains certainly are treasures. The liturgical service, which is called Holy Qurbono in Syriac Aramaic and means “Eucharist”, is celebrated on Sundays and special occasions.
The Holy Eucharist consists of Gospel Reading, Bible Readings, Prayers, and Songs. Apart from certain readings, all prayers are sung in the form of chants and melodies. Hundreds of melodies remain and these are preserved in Beth Gazo.
