This is the last portion of the ceremony, beginning just after the crowning, with the Dance of Isaiah, followed by the sharing of the common cup, the marriage blessing, the removal of the crowns, and the final blessing. Yes, it should have been chanted, but it was very, very hot and humid. I was unwilling to risk anyone, maybe especially myself, having problems with the heat; I am extremely heat sensitive. I did chant the quama, the series of prayers at the very beginning of the service. The recording volume is rather low.
