Special Compline by Candlelight: Downtown Voices

February 26, 2023

Kicking off the 2023 concert season, Trinity’s semi-professional choir, Downtown Voices, presented a special Compline by Candlelight with The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Stephen Sands, conductor. Following the theme of Mahatma Ghandi’s quote, “In the midst of darkness light persists,” during Lent our concerts will explore empathy for others’ suffering and the hope that Easter and Christ’s return bring. In featuring Caroline Shaw’s piece “To the Hands,” we will open our hands and hearts to others and seek healing together.

Compline by Candlelight is an ancient rite of prayers to end the day, set in the tranquility of St. Paul’s Chapel, one of the oldest buildings in New York City. Can’t make it? Learn more about our Compline podcasts—a way to incorporate this centering ritual from wherever you are.
