The Compline Choir anticipates one opening for Tenor I (first/high) and two for Bass or Bass-Baritone beginning in Summer 2017
Interested candidates should prepare a piece demonstrating lyric, sustained singing. In addition, candidates will sing three sight-reading examples—two in modern notation and one in square-note notation (it is not as difficult as it sounds). Finally, candidates will undergo intervallic, musicianship, and pitch memory tests. Membership in the Compline Choir is a major volunteer commitment requiring participation in 44 of 52 services per year. Auditions will be held May 7, 14, and 21 or until all positions are filled. Contact us to schedule an audition.
Construction has begun at Saint Mark’s CATHEDRAl
On April 17, 2017, the cathedral broke ground on a multi-million dollar preservation and renovation project—the exterior walls of the cathedral will be clad in limestone and the windows replaced with new energy-efficient models designed to match the old windows in style and color. Construction will continue through mid-December 2017. The cathedral will remain open throughout construction.
The office of Compline will be impacted minimally. The choir may sing from the organ loft or other space due to space restrictions. This will not affect the live broadcast on Classical 98.1 KING-FM. Learn more about the project!
The Compline Window given in memory of Dr. Peter R. Hallock
There are few features of Saint Mark’s Cathedral as prominent as its windows. Renovations of the cathedral have just begun and the massive windows of the “Holy Box” will be replaced with new, efficient ones while retaining the aesthetic of the present ones.
The cost of replacing the window in the Compline corner is $150,000. If we are able to raise these funds, the window will be named in loving memory of Dr. Peter R. Hallock, who founded the Compline Choir 61 years ago. You can be a part of this dedication by making a one-time or monthly gift to the Living Stones Capital Campaign. Learn more and donate now!
“The Lord Almighty grant us a quiet night and a perfect end. Amen.”
The men of the Compline Choir chant and sing the service to an audience of thousands who attend in person or by live media every Sunday night at 9:30 PM. The Compline Choir invites you to contemplation and reflection.
