Compline

  • Christ Church 141 East Avenue Rochester, NY, 14604 United States (map)

Schola Cantorum of Christ Church (Stephen Kennedy, Director) sings the Compline service.

The ancient Liturgy of Compline marks the close of the “Hours of the Divine Office.” Its origins date from the 4th Century monastic custom of private prayer and devotion before retiring.  St. Benedict is credited for the name of the office, its liturgical character, and arrangement. 

A brief prelude will be played at 8:50 pm by Malcolm Matthews.
