Every Sunday evening at 9:30 p.m. in the Cathedral's nave, the all-male Compline Choir leads this formal choral service that is a Seattle tradition. An average audience of 500 packs the Cathedral each week for this meditative service. Many more listen to the broadcast on KING-FM, 98.1 on the radio dial. Some weeks, informal organ recitals follow Compline at around 10 p.m.
