Advent Compline

Compline is the last service of the seven which are sung in monasteries and convents. It brings us to the end of the day, and it is also a gentle preparation for the end of life, very much in the spirit of Thomas Ken’s words:

Teach me to live, that I may dread
The grave as little as my bed;
Teach me to die, that so I may
Rise glorious on that aweful day.

Compline in the Cathedral has changed very little since the monks of Ely sang it before the Reformation. It is a meditative, candlelit space for music, prayer and reflection, to quiet and calm the soul, to look back over the day that is gone, and to commend ourselves and those we love to the care of God as night comes.

With the Cathedral’s Compline Choir, in the Lady Chapel.

The event is finished.
