The Office of Compline

The office of Compline will continue to be sung in the nave and broadcast live on KING-FM and for the foreseeable future; however, the video livestream of Compline is coming to an end as a weekly offering. The final livestreamed service will be May 31. (Future services may be livestreamed on a one-off basis for special occasions.) Please continue to listen live at 98.1 FM, and subscribe to the Compline Podcast—search for "Saint Mark's Compline" wherever you get your podcasts, or visit

Every Sunday evening at 9:30 p.m. in the Cathedral's nave, the all-male Compline Choir leads this formal choral service that is a Seattle tradition. A congregation of several hundred packs the Cathedral each week for this meditative service. Thousands more listen to the broadcast on KING-FM, 98.1 on the radio dial, or to the podcast. Some weeks, informal organ recitals follow Compline at around 10 p.m.

An Order for Compline can be found in the Book of Common Prayer as part of the Anglican services of daily prayer, known collectively as the Daily Office. You can see the Order of Service as it is presented as Saint Mark's.
