The prayer at the close of the day, known as Compline, is the last in a continuous cycle of daily prayers and worship known as the Divine Office of the church. The chanted service of prayers as sung by The Minnesota Compline Choir continues the traditions that have been kept by monastic communities around the world for over a thousand years.

The choir is comprised of 18 male voices, selected by audition from a wide variety of congregations and denominations. They meet weekly to prepare for each service, and on other occasions for performances at special holiday services.

In worship, the choir performs all of the liturgy, hymns, anthems, and psalms. The Choir is currently in residence at the Chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas on the campus of St. Thomas Univiersity in St. Paul, MN. Check the Compline web site for their schedule.
