Maronites are a small community of Syrian christians. They have their own liturgy and church organization but acknowledge the supremacy of the pope and are in full communion with Rome.

The following Factbook searches should give you more information (depending on your library):

Good answer ... for musicians one should add they have their own beautiful chant tradition which is where I first learned of them.

Thanks to both.  Can you give us a link to one of their chants?  

[[Answered my own request.]]  Agree that it is 'beautiful' - thanks
