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.
