Prayers, Ceremonies, Songs of Praise

I’ve been recording at a variety of different temples and churches over these past few days. I wanted to experience the different feelings of these places of worship, listen to the acoustics and witness the rituals & ceremonies that take place there. This is a clip of several of these places of worship (Evening Pooja (Puja), Maghrib, Buddhist chanting and a Christian song of praise respectively :

It’s interesting to note that the majority of people who answered my survey didn’t cite sounds originating from religious contexts as being sacred, which suprised me!
