Wow Excellent! What a precise work! I checked them all :D I am catholic, yet I have heard of St Basil of Ostrog, and in Lebanon there is a catholic church of St Panteleimon, and St Barbara. This is an amazing work, a reference for Saints.

Even in Philippines they know about him? great!

I'm from Lebanon, actually i learned about him from a video shared by a french friend, it was a procession, and they were chanting the psalm 135.
Serbian chants are marvelous, both religious and traditional.
And thank you for the watch!
