Compline at Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, NC—5.1.2011

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)
Psalm 91 (chanted to Tone 8)
Hymn: O sons and daughters, let us sing (O FILII ET FILIAE)
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 (Robert Parsons)
Organ improvisation by the abfab Van Quinn on O filii et filiae

Wynne Beers chanted the chapter in what was his last Compline with us. He'll be moving on to bigger and better things. Congratuations to Wynne, as well as to the other graduating seniors/graduate students who sang with us!

This was also our last Compline service of the Spring Semester. We'll be starting up again in the fall.
