d.. At Great Friday Matins, celebrated on Great Thursday evening and including the reading of the 12 Gospels of the Lord's Passion, in addition to the usual call to worship and treble peal at the beginning of Matins there is a call to worship at each Gospel: before the 1st Gospel -- 1 stroke on the large bell, before the 2nd Gospel -- 2 strokes, before the 3rd Gospel -- 3 strokes, and so on.
At the conclusion of Matins, while the faithful are carrying their "Thursday Fire" home, a treble peal (trezvon) is prescribed.
