Our western-based music conveys the text faithfully, too. It melds so well with the Russian music that most of the time you wouldn't even know it was lifted from western sources unless you were told.

I assume you use fairly Western-style Russian tones? Otherwise, all I can say is your audience is not very sensitive.
"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).

Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy
