Identify this chant for me?

Incidentally, where do these different styles of chant come from? How does one learn them?

The chanting is being led by Ajahn Sucitto, who is the abbot of Chithurst monastery in the UK. It is an adapted Thai style.

And as a side curiosity, in the video I posted, why does this phrase occur at 05:12mins? Does anyone know?
