This app presents an English edition of Compline (Night Prayer). You can listen to the friars from St. Dominic Priory (St. Louis, MO) chant Compline & pray along on your device.

The edition of Compline presented here is according to the "Liturgia horarum" (1971) and as enriched by the proper Dominican elements proposed in the "Supplement to the Liturgy of the Hours for the Order of Preachers" (1982).

What’s New

Version 3.1.2

Squashed some bugs.
First: I had to remove the "Pray Compline" feature that would automatically bring you to today's prayer. It was too buggy and I haven't had the time to fix it.
Second: Removed push notifications. They'll becoming back in a later version.
Third: Other errors. If you notice them while praying, please e-mail me and let me know.

Very useful app

I am thoroughly pleased with this app. I especially like how the entire night’s prayer is recorded. This helps me as a Lay Dominican feel a sense of community with the Order when I do compline on my own. I’m also not the most musically inclined so the recording helps me sing/chant correctly. If there was a similar app for the other offices in the Dominican rite, I would download it in a heartbeat. I realize that is quite a tall order though. Thank you for creating this very useful app.

<3 compline

My fav hours in a Dominican setting. This is a great way to draw anyone into the praying life of the OPs. Being more familiar with the ways of the Western Province, I notice some subtle differences in the text and music.

I'd love to see the Latin Completarium incorporated in here even if audio is not available.

This has been a really peaceful way to end each night.

Keep up the good work!

Hi! Thanks for the review. Regarding your first request: This was an issue with iOS that Apple fixed with iOS 12.2. If you upgrade your iPhone this issue will resolve itself. Blessings!

Great but please fix

My family has grown to love this app. My kids go to sleep with it every night! But perhaps because of some iOS update in the last month or so, it will no longer play smoothly. It starts the first five seconds then stops, on both our iPhone and iPad. Please fix! My son says he can’t sleep if he can’t hear the salve Regina every night….
