Compline in Holy Week

Scroll to explore

Join us for this beautiful candlelit service of night prayer or ‘compline’ sung by The Ebor Singers, with a Holy Week Address given by the Dean of York.

This service is a form of prayer said at the completion of the day, and traditionally after this service we are encouraged to enter into a period of silence.

On Monday, the choir will sing J. S. Bach’s motet Jesu meine freude, with its commentary on Jesus Christ freeing man from sin and death. Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s vivid depiction of St Peter’s three-time denial of Jesus in his oratorio Le Reniement de St Pierre, can be heard on Tuesday.
