i think it's actually the rosary in latin. you have a leader saying the first part, "hail mary" through to "thy womb jesus" then the responders
saying "holy mary mother of god, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death". i think i also hear the mysteries or an our father in there,
but i don't speak latin and the recording's not to clear , so i'm not sure, the form just sounds like it changes.
don't know about anywhere else but saying a few decades of the rosary is quite common among catholics in ireland, it happens after mass or at
this recording is exactly the way the rosary is chanted, the leader speaks latin well but the crowd are just making the sounds for the most part so
the rhythm is used to tell people when to respond and when the form changes so they know if it's a hail mary of an our father or a mystery they're
i can't say if it's ghostly or not, just thought i'ld expand on what exactly it is. the only thought that occurs to me as a logical explanation is
that your friend had picked up the broadcast from a local church. the mike the priest uses is linked to the speakers in the church via radio. if this
is the case, often a dead person is "removed to the church" the day before a funeral, about 7, the mass is over by 7.40 and then the priest may lead
the rosary over the coffin at the request of the family. i think anyone can lead, but usually the priest.
it might also be the same type of broadcast from evening song at a monastery.
i sometimes pick these broadcasts up on my car stereo, a couple of miles radius maybe.
if it is ghostly, there are a lot of ghosts involved.
