Choral Compline

All are welcome to join our special services during Holy Week & Easter.

Compline is a service of quietness and reflection before rest at the end of the day. It derives its name from the Latin word for "completion", referring to the completion of the waking day.

Choral Compline will be held at 8.00pm on Monday and Tuesday of Holy Week (25th and 26th March). With music sung by the Lay Vicars of the Cathedral Choir.

The Lord almighty grant us a quiet night and a perfect end.

Opening Prayer for Compline
