    I have played this week’s compline over and over and over because it is so melodic and harmonious – beautiful to my senses. It is about to go away. Is there any way I can get a copy?? Bless you all for this wonderful ministry???

    Hi Nancy, are you able to download and play audio files on your computer/phone? Look right under the music player controls where it says “Podcast: Play in new window | Download” and click download–it should send you the mp3. Please let us know if you need assistance, and we can send you one by hand. Glad you enjoy it!
