Does anyone know where to find resources for those who want to learn Oriental Church chant modes, maqam, raga, etc. I am really interested in Oriental chant, especially Syriac. Is there anything online?

thanks masboota!
Do the British Orthodox (Coptic) use a different chant tradition than the mainstream Coptic Church?

This site has an overview of the Syriac Tradition music system.
http://sor.cua.edu/BethGazo/index.html

And this site has several examples of some of the songs listed above in each of the 8 ragas from the Malankara school of music sung by Fr. M.P. George, the foremost Malpan of liturgical music in the Indian Orthodox Church.
http://malankaraorthodoxchurch.in/index.php?option=com_zoom&Itemid=204&catid=7

Keep in mind that the different usages and spellings from the first site to the second.
So Quqlyon in the first site corresponds to Kukkilion in the second.
Sebaltho in the first > Sebalso in the second
Mawerbo > Mavurbo
Qolo > Kolo
Tborto(broken) > Bovooso(prayer)

Not mentioned in the first site are the Madroshe and Moriyo Moran. Madroshe are teaching hymns (compare with the arabic 'madrassa') and I think Moriyo Moran(lit. The LORD our Lord) is another type of Kolo, which just means hymn.

yes, the british orthodox church use very european sounding chant in the liturgy; sadly there are few recordings available.
for vespers and other services, they use the main coptic services.
