Compline at St David's Episcopal, Austin, Texas

The Compline Choir of St. David's Episcopal Church in Austin, Texas welcomes all to come experience a beautiful half-hour of prayer, candlelight, and worship. The group, which consists of the finest singers in Austin, prepares and shares an ancient liturgy meant to end the day, honoring God and praying for His protection through the night. The group prays and sings the ancient prayers and responsories using Gregorian chant and Tudor motets. Please, join the choir at 8pm each Sunday in St Davids' historic sanctuary at 304 E Seventh St in Austin. See more about the music program at St Davids .

Meet the choir!

On the first Sunday evening of each month, Compline service is followed by a brief reception with refreshments, so that you can greet each other and the choir members.

I record these sound files each Sunday evening that I sing with the Compline choir. Lately I am using a TASCAM DR-40 Linear PCM recorder, with the built-in mics. (Before March 2014, I used a MicroTrack 24/96 flash recorder, using the standard little "stereo mic" that comes with it.) I edit the sound file into separate pieces using Audacity, the free audio editor available on the Internet.

If your browser knows how to play mp3 files, you may just be able to click and play these files. Otherwise, you may have to right-click and "Save target as...", and specify a place on your local machine to write the mp3 file. Then you'd play it from there.

I hope you enjoy the music!       - Susan Richter
