Compline at the Urban Well

Prayers of the early church
Join us on the eve of our Advent retreat for a short contemplative service chanted in Latin and English by candlelight.
Our special guest, Aliya Cycon, oud, also joins in this service to ground us in the mystical ancient harmonies of a foreign land where Mary prepared for the birth of the Christ child. The sung prayers will return us to the sounds of the early Church where, for countless centuries, the faithful have longed at this time of year for Emmanuel to come among us.
Cantors and the oud will join together in the 6th century prayer O Sapientia (O Wisdom) designated for the 17th of December as the church heads into its final seven days leading to Christmas Eve.
