* In some places on Mt. Athos, immediately after the response "It is proper and right" in the Liturgy of St. Basil, this
melody of "Lord, have mercy" is chanted repeatedly until the priest completes the silent prayer "O Existing One, Master,
Lord God..." However, it may be unnecessary when more than one priest is serving, since the presiding priest can
complete this prayer while another priest says the next petition.

Psalmody—bringing about choral singing, a bond, as it were,
toward unity, and joining people into a hamonious union of one choir—
produces also the greatest of blessings: love.
