Compline at Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, NC - 10.18.2009

Still playing catch-up... coming down with the flu will do that to a person.

Compline at Chapel of the Cross.

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

Here are our little additions:

Let my prayer come up into Thy presence (Henry Purcell)
Psalms 4 and 31 (chanted to Tone 8)
Hymn: To you before the close of day (TE LUCIS ANTE TERMINUM, plainsong Mode 8)
Nunc Dimittis from Short Service (O. Gibbons)
Salve Regina (Marian antiphon right after the Dismissal)
A portion of Ave Maria (Josquin Desprez)
Organ Voluntary by the equally abfab Dr. Van Quinn. He improvised on the opening lines of the Josquin Ave Maria.

(Note: the picture above depicts one of the votive candle layouts that Jimmy Satterwhite had laid out a couple of years ago. I can't remember where the picture came from, though.)
