E-corpus is not only a document library; the platform can also stream audio recordings.
In recent months, several digital music sites were launched:
-Syriac liturgical songs (collaboration of Manumed: University of Louvain and University of Kaslik)
-Coptic liturgical songs (collaboration of Manumed: University of Louvain and the Coptic Patriarchate of Cairo)
-Traditional Iranian songs (there are currently 2 recordings but there will be hundreds here in a few weeks)
