ORGAN AT DAVIDSON

Prayer at the Close of Day

by | Jan 6, 2019 | Arts & Entertainment, Houses of Worship

In this busy world, space and time for quiet meditation is something many of us long for. Combined musical leadership from Davidson College Presbyterian Church  and Davidson United Methodist Church offers you “Prayer at the Close of Day: In the traditions of Compline and Taizé.” Compline has its roots in ancient monastic tradition as the last service of the day, when psalms were chanted every three hours throughout each day. Taizé originated in France at an ecumenical religious community dedicated to peacemaking and inclusivity, and its musical style involves short melodies which the congregation sings repeatedly, allowing the words to become a heart-felt prayer. Musicians from both churches will lead us with reflective, unaccompanied music; there will be candlelight, prayers, scripture, congregational Taizé songs, and periods of silence.

Join us January 20 at 7:30 in Lingle Chapel at Davidson College Presbyterian Church.
