Radio Beth Gazo is a nonprofit radio channel that can be found on Facebook, the home page www.radiobethgazo.com and through the app "Radio Beth Gazo". It is founded by servants of the Syriac Orthodox Church feeling the need of spreading the treasures within the Church to its followers and faithful assembly through the listening word and hymns. The name "Radio Beth Gazo" is derived to the book Beth Gazo, the key reference to Syriac Orthodox Church music, consisting of hymns and tunes.
"Beth Gazo" is Syriac and the English translation is "House of Treasures". The liturgical service, which is called Holy Qurbono in Syriac 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.
Ratings and Reviews
My Syriac Roots
I've never written an app review but I had too now that I've deepened my connection with my faith. Thank you to the Beth Gazo team for bringing this to the world both Syriacs and non-Syriacs alike. Our hymns, praises, songs and liturgies will not be lost in the digital age. God Bless.
A basic but good radio app. Slide your finger to the right for recently played songs. Go to the left for options. I'm new to Syriac music but I'm enjoying it. May God bless them.
Thank you for making the effort to develop the app. I listen to it from the USA. It sounds great. I will surely spread the word. Aloho nbarekh lkhoon.
