Take a Divine Time Out…

Night Song is offered at 7:30 pm on Sundays from September through May at First Church in Cambridge, 11 Garden St. Experience sublime and transformative music in a quiet, candlelit space.

The music is a unique fusion of ancient and modern chant with contemplative modal instrumental improvisations and splendid choral motets from the Renaissance, offered within the framework of the monastic office of compline.

To some Night Song is experienced as a spiritual journey, letting their prayers and hopes rise with those of others as incense, the lifting up of hearts and hands as an evening sacrifice. Some simply receive a sense of comfort and strength. Others use the music to transport and transform, to escape for moments of peace and clarity.

While Christian in nature, Night Song is open to all. Simply take from it what meets your needs and what expresses your hopes and concerns for others.  Revel in the comfort of the darkness and the stillness of the church at night, reflect on the day and trust that you will be protected by the almighty through the night as you rest in peace.
