The First Sunday in Lent

NOTE: During the season of Lent, on a trial basis, the Compline Choir is using a slightly re-ordered version of the office of Compline. This version places the Confession and Absolution of Sin nearer the beginning of the service and switches the placement of the Psalm and Office Hymn. This is not a permanent change and the Compline Choir will re-evaluate use of the version after Lent.

ORISON*: The Truth from Above – Herefordshire Carol, arr. Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958)

HYMN: O Christ, you are both light and day (Tune: Christe, qui Lux es et dies) – Plainsong, Mode II; Mainlander Hymnen, 15th cent.
