Cathedral Music Trust has brought together musicians from over 20 cathedrals for a digital recreation of the ancient service of compline, aiming to bring peace and solace at a time of continued isolation and lockdown. The digital service features Revd Lucy Winkett, Harry Christophers CBE, Roderick Williams and Eddie Redmayne.
Compline is an ancient form of night prayer going back over a thousand years. Literally meaning ‘completion’, it is a beautiful service of contemplation and reflection for people of all faiths and none to mark the end of the day.
This virtual presentation of compline marks the premiere of three brand new commissions by leading composers: ‘Together in Unity’ by Bob Chilcott, ‘Nunc Dimittis’ by Joanna Marsh and 'Te lucis ante terminum’ by Paul Mealor.
We are so grateful to everyone who has taken part in this project. All involved gave their time and talents to help raise funds for choral foundations in need. Please donate to help secure the future of this valued tradition for generations to come.
