Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
The generalized pattern of chant practice is described with
special reference to Holy Way chants. The authors have been scrupulous about details of the
ceremonials and noted variations when they occur. They believe that when original
observations can no longer be made, the descriptions can be reduced to their behavioral
references and placed in their immediate context by those people who may care to use
