A Seattle tradition since 1955 every Sunday from 9:30-10:00 PM in St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral on Capitol Hill, the all-male Compline Choir leads this formal choral prayer service. Also known as the “chant service,” Compline is the ancient nighttime Christian prayers, known collectively as the Daily Office in the Book of Common Prayer (BCP). In short, Compline is a sung prayer service. This unique community of laypersons with diverse beliefs seek to express musically a concern for the nurture and care of the soul. All members, including its director, are volunteers and freely give of their time and talents to sing the office of Compline and support the Choir’s daily operations. An average audience of 500 packs the Cathedral each week for this meditative ritual. Many more listen to the broadcast on KING-FM, 98.1 on the radio dial or your podcast feed.
