"It was Sunday. The Serbian Orthodox church was filled with many people, mostly traders who came to town for business affairs. My God! What a colourful lot it was! It was almost as if the entire of Dušan’s empire came there.

From the choir’s balcony, where the singing ensemble „Jadrana“ was singing, just like a cure for the soul the sounds of Lvovsky’s liturgy were coming down. Rays of light from many coloured oceans, as angels’ swords, intertwined and flickered above the pious Christians’ heads…"
