Compline at Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, NC—4.24.2011

Easter Sunday Compline at Chapel of the Cross.

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

Here are our little additions:

Alleluia (Andrea Gabrieli)
Psalms 91 and 134 (chanted to Tone 8)
Hymn: Hymn: Christians, to the Paschal victim (VICTIMÆ PASCHALI LAUDES, Plainsong, Mode I)
Lord's Prayer (Robert Stone)
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 (Tomas Luis de Victoria)
Organ improvisation by the abfab Van Quinn on Victimae Paschali and the Easter Season Concluding Versicle and Response

Next week will be the last Compline of the academic year. We'll start up again in September. Happy Easter! And good luck to those of you who will be taking final exams this week and next!

(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.)
