Okay, so call me a nerdy creature. I'm just very happy that Compline is coming back. Our first Compline will be on Sunday, August 24, at 9.30 p.m. at Chapel of the Cross.
It's a wonderful experience - you walk into a darkened church, illuminated only by candlelight. Incense is swirling all around. Then, the schola enters the church, and the choir starts chanting the Compline service.
I really enjoyed listening to my fellow choristers chanting the service when I was suffering from that long bout of laryngitis. I really missed it - I haven't sung with the schola since the last Sunday in March.
I am, indeed, looking forward to rejoining the schola for this next academic school year.
