Lent Compline with Meditation

Join York Minster for meditative services of candle-lit Compline or ‘night prayer’, sung by the Ebor Singers in the Quire with traditional prayers, beautiful music and silence.

During these services of shadows and light, the Choir will sing excerpts from Tomas Luis de Victoria’s Tenebrae Responsories, a cycle of 18 pieces that trace the Passion story, originally included in the Holy Week service of Tenebrae at which the candles of the church were successfully extinguished.

Compline will take place every Thursday at 8.30pm, no booking is required. The dates are:
