Yuzu-Nenbutsu is interesting as Ryonin applied Avatamsaka philosophy to Nenbutsu practice, he also introduced Chinese tonal Nenbutsu chanting,which is very beautiful. Pork Chop are there any nice sound files? thanks for the explanation.
Namu Myoho Renge Kyo
The gist of these passages is that the Buddha's practice as the cause and His virtue as the effect are altogether contained in the five characters of "Myo-ho ren-ge kyo". If we uphold the five characters, the merits of those cause and effect are naturally transferred to us. (NOPPA D2, P146)

Haven't had much luck yet finding audio tracks.
This page has more videos, including vids of their services - one of them has a much cleaner version of the song used in the Manbu-Oneri. Another one of the videos has the biggest mala I've ever seen (beads the size of baseballs, lots of people using it at once, stretches for yards and yards).

According to this page, the 5 main sutras they promote are the Avatamsaka, the Lotus, and the 3 Pure Land.

PS - was a little wrong before, Ippen was a great-grand student of Honen: Honen -> Zenne-bo Shoku -> Shotatsu -> Ippen.
