Sung Compline

Music of Gabriel Jackson, Thomas Tallis and Thomas Mudd

A small group of singers will offer Sung Compline in our church on the First Sunday in Lent. Sung Compline is a deeply meditative way to end the day as the choir sings prayers, scripture and anthems. The service, which is sung in a darkened church, lasts less than 30 minutes.

Monday, April 1
7:30 p.m.
Choir at Clare College

The Choir of Clare College, Cambridge (UK), conducted by Graham Ross, returns to St. Michael’s for a second concert! This year’s program will be extraordinary, as the choir sings Lenten music by Gibbons, Tallis, Wesley, Howells and others, ending with Gerald Finzi’s “Lo, the full, final sacrifice.” They’ve programed the concert to take advantage of St. Michael’s superb pipe organ. Tickets are $25. Purchase tickets now at: HolyMichaelChoirs.org/concerts/
