No musical notation is included in the hymnal, but it has been argued that elements of the music traditionally sung in Amish worship are derived from Gregorian chant. So, you might be on to something, even though the music in that clip was not authentic to Amish worship.

Well then the BBC was very deceptive in the way they presented it as being a "real Amish prayer service".  >:(

It was very pretty music, though.  I like it.
I saw a film some years ago you might appreciate. It is a very sympathetic portrait of Amish life and has a wealth of information from those raised in the faith. There is no BBC-style sensationalism.
