    Compline sung service @ 8pm
    Night Prayer by Candlelight: this is a rare experience of beauty, history, and holiness in an historic old church. My whole family deeply enjoyed it. Here's the info on the service from the church's handout: Compline, or Night Prayer, is sung from 8:00-8:30p.m. every Sunday by candlelight by the 16-voice auditioned Compline Choir of Christ Church Anglican, Savannah. Enter into the stillness of another age. All are welcome.

    Nothing else like it in Savannah
    The compline service was dark, quiet and practically anonymous. The building was lit only by candles. It was a 30 minute church service that was entirely sung except for a 4 minute homily. The singers sang everything in English from a really wide range of genres (15th Century, 18th Century, Americana, etc) but was all thematic and thoughtful. Fantastic alto and soprano soloists. There were about 60 people in the congregation. Leave the kids at home!

    Compline is beautiful
    The 30 minute service of Compline, offered at Christ Church Anglican in Savannah, is comprised almost exclusively of music, ranging from Gregorian Chant to modern choral literature. It offers an opportunity for the listener to be immersed in aurel beauty and perhaps to enter into a spiritual experience. Timeless yet timely - you will not be disappointed!

Christ Church is classic! It is an important piece of architecture that adds volumes to the Savannah city-scape. And in a City known for the historical significance of so many buildings, Christ Church manages to be outstanding!

As we walked through the square, we admired the massive columns and architecture of the church, but it was not open for touring at that time. I am not sure if it ever is without a guide, but as we got to the northwest corner of the church a side door opened and the rector ( rector I think...not sure of his title but someone with authority and extensive knowledge) of the church asked my husband and myself if we would like to come in and see the church and get out of the heat. We were delighted about the prospect, and he showed us the entire church including the lower level where we entered. He explained the churches history and told us about its unique features. It was wonderful to see and get such a personal tour and so thoughtful of him to take time from his work to educate us. He also invited us to attend if we were ever there during a service.

Beautiful, candlelight service. Take 30 minutes to relax and reflect from this busy world. Enjoy the choir and the beautiful church. Please go. You will not regret it.

Sunday evenings there is a candlelight Compline Service. This service, Saying "Goodnight to God", is about 30 minutes long and non-participatory (you sit and meditate or pray silently) as lovely voices sing. An ancient and reverent way to spend a half hour while you are in Savannah. You'll be glad you did, regardless of church affiliation.

I have attended compline at Christ Church a few times. Everything is quiet and good. The church is next to a library. Near Foxy Loxy. I like the music and candlelight. People are nice.
