Compline in Collaboration with the Choristers of the Choir School, 2024

with No Comments

SUNDAY, JANUARY 14, 9:30 P.M., in the cathedral nave and livestreamed

Since 2015, the men of the Compline Choir have occasionally been joined by trebles from the Senior Choristers and Schola of the Cathedral Choir School to chant the Office of Compline at its usual time at 9:30 p.m. Sunday—creating an enriching intergenerational experience for all the singers involved, and a unique sound for the congregation. These collaborations are intended to occur every two years, but the last one was in February of 2019. This Sunday's office will feature a variety of special repertoire, including Peter Hallock's anthem Whom should we love like thee?, accompanied by Canon Michael Kleinschmidt on the organ.

UPDATE: A video of this service is now available:
