Other Opportunities for Worship

Compline

Compline is the last of the four services in the Anglican Daily Office. It is descended from the night prayer said before bed at the end of the monastic round of daily prayer. Compline is a simple office including a confession of sins, one or more psalms, a short reading from Scripture, versicles and responses, the Lord’s Prayer, collects which ask for God’s protection during the night to come, and the canticle, Nunc dimittis. A hymn for the evening may follow the short passage from Scripture. In recent years Trinity choirs have offered Compline on Sunday evenings during Lent and Advent. It will not be offered during Lent in 2020.

Evensong

  Evensong is a sung version of Evening Prayer. Since the late middle ages “evensong” has been the popular name for vespers (from the Latin vesperis, “evening”), the evening office of the western church.   Thomas Cranmer used it in the 1549 Book of Common Prayer. Although in 1552 he replaced it with “Evening Prayer” the common name remains Evensong. In many Anglican cathedrals and larger churches evensong is sung by clergy and choir as a choral liturgy. This service is offered periodically by the Trinity Choirs. Currently, the Choir School of Hartford regularly sings an Evensong on the First Tuesday of the month during the program year.
