    Live recording of liturgical chant sung by the monks of the Deyrulzafaran Monastery. In 2011, George Richards and Nathaniel Daudrich spent a month in the mountains of south-east Turkey, living among the Syriac Christians of the Tur Abdin, or the Mountains of the Servants of God. In two monasteries, Deyrulzafaran (the Saffron Monastery) and Mor Gabriel, they were granted permission to record the liturgical chant sung by the monks.
