Songs Outside My Window

Last night, I was sitting on my couch reading about masonry walls as one does on a regular Saturday night.  The window was open, because it finally getting warmish here in NYC and humid, which tells me that its almost beach weather (!!!).   Around midnight, I heard the most beautiful sounds of singing floating up from the street and into my living room.  I looked outside, and it was coming from the Ukranian Orthodox Church on my block. The entire congregation had gone outside, standing together on the balcony with candles, singing songs (which I didn't understand, but assume they must be about Easter).

What a welcome surprise.  Thank you!
