Sound successfully avoided being messed up by Priest Seraphim, who did not sing!
So beautiful! I wish I was there. Congratulations to Ms. Sander and all the choir. Great job, Fr. Seraphim!
Also, congrats to Natalia, beautiful job recording the choir. I'm enjoying listening to this at my desk at work.
