Make your way to the Eastern Lady Chapel at Bristol Cathedral to hear this hauntingly beautiful choral performance as you journey through the most solemn week of the Christian calendar. Compline will be sung by the Lay Clerks and Choral Scholars and will include the Lamentations of Jeremiah.

Compline, sometimes known as Night Prayer or Prayers at the End of the Day is the final church service of the day in the Christian tradition of canonical hours. The English word Compline is derived from the Latin completorium, as Compline is the completion of the working day. Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, Lutheran, and certain other Christian denominations with liturgical traditions prescribe Compline services. Compline tends to be a contemplative Office that emphasizes spiritual peace. In many monasteries it is the custom to begin the "Great Silence" after Compline, during which the whole community, including guests, observes silence throughout the night until the morning service the next day.

This is a free event. A retiring collection will be taken.
