A Night-time Office
An ad hoc vocal ensemble—including some junior and senior choristers—will present the Office of Compline at St. Thomas’ on Sunday, July 28th at 9 pm.
Compline is a quiet and contemplative service, and the music setting is mainly composed of various chants. “As its name implies, compline (completorium) is the canonical hour which ‘completes’ and brings the day to its close. The office owes much of its present form to St. Benedict.” It is—with matins (morning prayer) and vespers (evening prayer)—an office which is still sung in many churches and cathedrals.
This is going to be Francine & Matthieu's last service as music directors at St. Thomas’.

AN OPPORTUNITY FOR CHILDREN & ADULTS
At the beginning of the new year, there is an opportunity for children and adults to join St. Thomas’ Choral Academy.
Potential choristers must willing to be challenged, whatever their level is (beginner, intermediate or advanced), and must have the discipline required to practise every day even if for only a few minutes. Learning music is similar to learning a language, and requires daily practice in order to improve at a decent speed.
Potential choristers must meet with the directors of music before joining the Choral Academy. They are always pleased to receive enquiries from potential members of the Junior & Senior Choirs.

Education sessions for those requiring supervisor training or those wishing an update will be held as needed. Please give your name to the office and the Kitchen Team will get back to you with the time of the next session.
