I have attached to this post complete scans of two books containing Byzantine music compositions in Arabic by the late Mitri el-Murr (1880-1969), Protopsaltis of the See of Antioch. The first is Mitri el-Murr's initial publication el-Qithara el-Rouhiyyat (Beirut, 1955), which contains music for the Divine Liturgy. The second is el-Qiyamiyyat [the Anastasimatarion], which was published after his death by his son Fouad in 1970, and which also contains Mitri el-Murr's elaborate doxologies. Many of the compositions in these books are in widespread use today throughout the Middle East.

Are there any more books by Mitri el Murr available as pdfs?

Thank you,

As far as I known, only the two abovementionned books are available as pdfs. Some other books have been published, like Al-Mizmâr al-RûHî (= The Spiritual Psalter), Part 1. The Festal Menaion (409 p.), and Part. 2, Triodion and Pentekostarion (104 p.). Both have been published by his son the late Fu'âd in 1972. I do have them but not as pdfs ...
