The Compline Service from St. Mark's Cathedral

Summary: A weekly podcast of the Compline service as sung every Sunday night by The Compline Choir in St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral in Seattle, Washington. Founded in 1954 by the group's former director, Peter R. Hallock, the service has become something of a phenomenon, with upwards of 500 people (most of them in their teens and early twenties) attending the service, and thousands in the local radio audience and on the Internet each week.
