A short, simple melody, especially one characterized by single notes to which an indefinite number of syllables are intoned, used in singing the psalms, canticles, etc., in the church service. In both East and West, the name of God is chanted over and over again in the ritual of atonement whereby the soul of man becomes one with the Spirit of God by intonation of the sound of His name. This is given in Sanskrit as AUM or AUM TAT SAT AUM and in English as I AM THAT I AM.
