Does anyone have any good links to resources that explain/discuss the tones of the Beth Gazo (Syriac tone/hymnody system) and how they work musically? I'm most interested in the Syriac Orthodox church, and would like to read up on their liturgy (also useful since I don't live near any Syriac parishes, and it will be awhile before I can access one), but have not found many good sources online.

I'm unaware of anything online that discusses the Beth Gazo in depth.  This is a basic introduction.  Maybe some of our resident Syrians will chime in.  There are print resources, though, and you could properly get a hold of them through inter-library loan or some similar program.   

I'm no musician, so I'm useless when it comes to explaining how the music "works", using technical musical terms properly, etc.  If that's what you're after, I can't help you very much.  Is that what you're interested in, or do you have something more liturgical in mind?
