Every Sunday evening at 9:30pm in the Cathedral’s nave, the all-male Compline Choir leads this formal choral service that is a Seattle tradition. When Saint Mark’s Cathedral is open, an average audience of 250-300 packs the Cathedral each week for this meditative service. Many more listen to the broadcast on KING-FM, 98.1 on the radio dial. Some weeks, informal organ recitals follow Compline at around 10pm.
An Order for Compline can be found in the Book of Common Prayer as part of the Anglican services of daily prayer, known collectively as the Daily Office.
