The sonic atmosphere of the moments when visitors attending the Sunday Mass arrive, when they are waiting for the service and chatting is quite different, often more interesting than the ceremony itself. As the ritual begins, the priest takes visually control over auditorium, everything changes as well soundwise. The technology of power - sound system is used and microphone amplifies priest's voice to destroy the magic of the space and moment.
