Compline by Candlelight

May 8, 2022

Compline by Candlelight provides peace and stillness as one week ends and another begins. Set in the tranquility of St. Paul’s Chapel, one of the oldest buildings in New York City, guests find a seat and hold a candle, while 30 minutes of mantra-like, chant-based improvised music by The Choir of Trinity Wall Street fill the space. There’s nothing to do but listen.
