Singers from over 20 cathedrals join forces for virtual service of compline
Listen live tonight, or catch up online (Link to page below)
I was discussing this with Shaun, our music director, earlier in the week and we thought some of our musically-minded members would enjoy the peaceful worship of Compline.
(There is also a hymn singing for all project, which will be posted in due course)
Musicians from over 20 cathedrals are being brought together for a digital re-creation of the ancient service of compline, aiming to bring peace and solace at a time of continued isolation and lockdown. The digital service features Revd Lucy Winkett, Harry Christophers CBE, Roderick Williams and Eddie Redmayne, and will go live on Thursday 18 March at 8.30pm GMT (21:30 CET)
This virtual presentation of compline marks the premiere of three brand new commissions by leading composers: ‘Together in Unity’ by Bob Chilcott, ‘Nunc Dimittis’ by Joanna Marsh and ‘Te lucis ante terminum’ by Paul Mealor.
We hope to bring more music to you to hearten you in the coming weeks.
