Chorali Hymns are a form of Theurgy.
Whereas most forms of Theurgy require prayer, recitations and gestures, the primary invocation tool for Chorali hymns is song. The Chorali must sing out these hymns to achieve the desired effect. If trained in the use of vestments, the Chorali might use a musical instrument to aid the hymn.

|This song tells a story of Hombar the Beggar, one of the Prophet's disciples. Hombar was such a humble figure that one day, a murderous crowd could not bring themselves to attack the poor man. Instead, they found themselves listening to the beggar's words.
