St. Basil the Great in Irving. A parishioner was kind enough to give a tour. I missed the quality of heartfelt chant I heard at St. Basil's today, particularly the Communion antiphon "Receive the Body of Christ and taste the font of immortality."
|Icon of the Theophany of the Lord over the Baptismal font.|
|Inside the Holy Place. The hanging dove was a gift and has no Byzantine connection (but it does have a Sarum one!)|
|In a larger parish this icon of Christ Pantocrator would be part of a dome over the nave|
UPDATE: Here is the Communion hymn most often sung during the Byzantine
Divine Liturgy, usually interspersed with verses of psalm 148.
