Bainbridge Island Review


Compline Choir returns to Saint Barnabas Episcopal Church

October 6, 2013 · 12:01 PM

After a summer hiatus, the Men’s Compline Choir of Bainbridge Island returns to sing the Office of Compline at 8 p.m. on the first Sunday of the month, at Saint Barnabas Episcopal Church.

Compline, also called Night Prayer, is the last of the traditional daily services sung by monastic communities and dates back to at least the 8th century. The service consists of chant, readings, psalms, prayers, petitions and hymns, sung in a contemplative setting in a darkened church. All are welcome.

The next service is 8 p.m. Oct. 6.
