As Nighttime Falls
Hymns, Psalms and Prayers to End the Day
Item #: G-9614
As Nightime Falls: Hymns, Psalms, and Prayers to End the Day is a collection of music for use in praying compline. Each prayer lasts about 15–20 minutes and includes an introduction, an examination of conscience, a hymn, psalmody, a scripture reading, a responsory, the Canticle of Simeon, a concluding prayer, and a blessing. Finally, each day concludes with the beautiful antiphon to the Blessed Virgin Mary, “Salve Regina.” The enchanting Celtic charm of Ian’s compositional style permeates the hymn selections and psalms in this collection.
This collection can be used to end youth retreats, Marriage Encounter weekends, parish missions, and other evening events. The companion 2-CD set contains a recording of the complete compline service one for each day of the week. With the recording As Nighttime Falls can be prayed in solitude just before going to sleep. It can also be used in communities when no pastoral musician is available.
Enter into this rich tradition of the church. At the end of each day let As Nighttime Falls offer you a way to give gratitude for the beauty and wonder of God.
