Yorkshire Medieval Churches Festival (Church Explorers). Dominican Rite Compline. Gregorian Chant.
 
The Rudgate Schola are going to be singing Compline by candlelight using the old Dominican Rite (with it’s processions) each evening from Sunday 21st August to Friday 26th August at 8.30pm. On the final day, 27th August, we shall sing Vespers using the Roman Rite (Extraordinary Form) at 3.30pm and conclude with Dominican Compline at 8pm. We realise we won’t get everything right (we’re not Dominicans for starters) but we will endeavour to follow as closely as possible Compline as published in this book (URL below), given the space available to us. The Dominicans celebrate their 800th anniversary this year, so it is entirely appropriate that we should commemorate this in some way.

The venue for all of this is St Mary’s Church (the oldest in York), Bishophill Junior, York YO1 6EN
