Prayer call

During the entire alpine grazing season, the prayer call is «sung» on various alps in Appenzell Innerrhoden . The herdsman calls out a prayer through a wooden funnel in a simple singing tone, pleading for the blessing of the Almighty Father and the intercession of the Saints on the alp and the land below.
