Three -year old Hansel Joseph sings Syriac chants

It is indeed a delight to watch the three-year-old Hansel Joseph singing his favorite Syriac chants. He does it with ease and an innocent smile. Hansel is the grandson of Ammini John Anamthuruthil (see Aramaic Project-48.). Hansel learned the melodies by listening to his grandmother who is nostalgic about the Syriac era of the Syro Malabar Church. She continues to hum the melodies of the Syriac chants at home. Hansel is not old enough to handle the Syriac syllables, but he seems to enjoy the act of singing. Home could be the first and the best place where children can start listening to Syriac chants. They shall never forget that experience in their lives, We hope this video will inspire many parents and children alike. We are grateful to Hansel's parents for capturing these precious moments.
