At dinner shortly after meeting Fr. John Hennies at the annual Bliny Breakfast, he asked if I would sing the chant I'd sung in the church basement that February day we first met. He said he would be screening a recent prize-winning Russian film, The Island, for the local population, which had an Orthodox theme and wanted me to set an Orthodox mood for the audience. I was pleased to do so. Fortunately, one of my sons (James) was there to film it. This story is captured on YouTube below.
