Product Description


What first alerted my ear was the strength and beauty of the vocal sound ... the [CD] begins with three plainchant tracks that seduce the ear with excellent intonation and incline the heart to the ageless emotions of the psalms. So it is an unexpected pleasure when there emerges a four-part hymn both rich in its voicing and velvet in tessitura ... Even more compelling was the second, contemporary service with its newly composed psalm tone, longer scripture reading, and invitingly dissonant Lord's Prayer ... the careful marriage of text and music was a masterful proof of how attentive one can and must be in the sung language of prayer ... In a busy work week, I can think of few better ways to relax in the evening, to raise one's mind to God effortlessly, and to bathe oneself in choral beauty than to sit and listen to this CD. The Living Church

Evening Reflections 20 Sep 2010
By Pam Murphy - Published on Amazon.com

My vision is limited and I love to listen to prayer when I have the opportunity. This is wonderful for the evening. It offers a great way to wind down and focus on the God who gave you the day that you have just finished.

Stunning! 9 Nov 2011

This is one of the best - if not the best- recordings of Compline I have heard. I am enjoying praying with the brothers and especially like track 4, the night hymn "So the Day Dawns". The first time I heard it, it brought tears to my eyes it was so good. Soaring melody and harmony in prayer! I would recommend to anyone with a desire for contemplative night prayer. Well done, brothers!

Great recording of the compline office 20 Oct 2013

This is an excellent recording of two versions of compline. The many hymns on the CD are excellent for inserting into your own compline service.
