The characteristic and pleasant scent of burning wood greeted my nostrils this morning as I stepped outside, and I knew that Misha has already arrived and started a fire in the hall. It takes a couple of hours to heat the entire hall, but once heated, it remains warm for a long time.  The voices at the kliros were strong and most agreeable.  If I am not mistaken, the entire service lasted more than four hours, as we served the Liturgy of Saint Basil which is longer than the Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom.
