Compline is a service of evening prayer and reflection that originated from the daily worship (offices) of the monastic tradition. Compline is offered when the work of the day is completed, and the quietness of evening settles over the hearts and minds of those who have come together in thankfulness for the blessings of the day which has passed and in anticipation of God's gift of a new day. Joining in this ancient tradition of the Christian faith unites our hearts with the “cloud of witnesses that have preceded us.

 


Now in its eighth season, the Compline Series is presented by a choir of alumni and friends of the Maryland State Boychoir.  They sing a 45-minute service of original music composed by choir alumni and friends, accompanied by favorite anthems.

 

Services are followed by a reception. If you would like to sponsor a reception or dinner for the singers, please contact us.
