Choir in quire

Join York Minster for meditative services of candle-lit Compline or ‘night prayer’, sung by the Ebor Singers in the Quire with traditional prayers, beautiful music and silence.

During these services of shadows and light, the Choir will sing excerpts from Tomas Luis de Victoria’s Tenebrae Responsories, a cycle of 18 pieces that trace the Passion story, originally included in the Holy Week service of Tenebrae at which the candles of the church were successfully extinguished.

Each service will include a short meditation on one of six ‘habits of Christlikeness’ connecting to the newly formed Diocesan Rhythm of life and the Archbishop of York’s Lent Course.

Compline will take place every Thursday at 8.30pm, no booking is required. The dates are:

  • Thursday 23 February – Prayer
  • Thursday 2 March – Worship
  • Thursday 9 March – Love
  • Thursday 16 March – Generosity
  • Thursday 23 March – Witness
  • Thursday 30 March – Rest
