Eh, this is one week late.

Compline at Chapel of the Cross.

This is the last Compline of the 2008-2009 academic year. We had a wonderful group of singers, and we've been able to greatly expand our repertoire. It's been a lot of fun singing with this group, and we'll miss those who will be leaving due to graduation or other reasons. Ian E. and I have taken pictures; look for them on Facebook (but you might have to friend us to see them).

We've been using the Order for Compline, as set by David Hurd. Our little additions:

Duo Seraphim (Jacob Handl)
Psalms 91 and 134 (chanted to Tone 8)
Hymn: Christ, mighty Saviour (CHRISTE, LUX MUNDI, plainsong Mode 7)
In manus tuas (Sheppard; sung in addition to "Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit ...)
Nunc Dimittis from Short Service (O. Gibbons)
Concluding Versicle and Response in Easter Season ("Let us bless the Lord, alleluia, alleluia ...")
Regina Coeli (Marian antiphon right after the Dismissal)
Ave Maria (Robert Parsons)
Organ Voluntary by the abfab David Arcus.

I will miss Compline. We did do a recording of it, thanks to one of the regular attendees of the Compline services. If you are interested in acquiring a copy, please contact me and we'll see about getting a copy to you.
