The Women’s Compline Choir Returns

with 2 Comments
TWO SUNDAYS, JULY 19 & 26, 9:30 P.M., broadcast live on KING-FM, and livestreamed 
After the historic and moving all-women Compline services offered last summer, plans were made for a repeat offering in the summer of 2020. The 21 women who participated last year cannot gather now, but a choir consisting only of Rebekah Gilmore and three other singers will offer Women's Compline once again on two Sundays in July. These services will be livestreamed on the cathedral website and on Facebook Live. Like last year, a new work has been commissioned and will receive its world premiere — Kevin Siegfried, a composer with Seattle roots and longstanding connections with the Compline Choir, has composed “Sisters, we have met to worship,” based on the early American Hymn tune Holy Manna. If you wish, you may RSVP on the Facebook event page.

UPDATE 7/28: Video of the service of July 26 may be seen below:

    I would enjoy getting email regarding upcoming services.

      Thank you for you interest, Wendy. I’d be happy to add you to the cathedral mailing list, which will notify you of all upcoming cathedral events, unless you mean only emails about Compline specifically?
