You are invited to sing the office of Compline under the direction of Patrick Russill, director of music at the London Oratory. The evening starts at 7.30 pm with a brief AGM of RSCM London, then the rehearsal starts at 8.15 pm and Compline at 9.30 pm. (We are also invited to attend the Parish Eucharist at 6.30 pm.)
Patrick Russill enjoys a distinguished place in English church music as a performer, pedagogue and scholar of diverse interests. He combines his role as Head of Choral Conducting at the Royal Academy of Music with the post of Director of Music of the London Oratory.
Compline is the final church service [or office] of the day, and will be sung to ancient chants which soothe the ear and prepare the soul for rest.
