Covington Compline

Covington Compline 002
Covington welcomed the Kym Valley Benefice Choir on Friday 14th June at 7.30pm to lead us in a service of compline, sung to original plainsong music. The wonderful acoustic of All Saints’ Church and the monastic purity of the music gave a powerful dimension to this occasional office. Choir members from three out of four of our benefice churches tackled the psalms and chants – quite different from our more usual more modern repertoire. It’s not often in a service that the traditional evening hymn “The day thou gavest” is the most modern piece in the service!  The choir also sang the Thomas Attwood anthem “Come, Holy Ghost.”
