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).
Lots of good stuff in this release.
1) Updated the color scheme and typography of the app.
2) Users can now increase or decrease the font size. Just open the side menu at any point while using the app.
3) When you click the "Pray Compline" button, you will be automatically redirected to today's prayer. This is a beta feature, and we're still working out the kinks. If you run into any issues please let me know at webmater[at]dominicancompline.com
4) Backend and bug fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
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.

Praying with the Dominicans
What a wonderful app. I am going through my discernment process to become a lay Dominican and praying Compline with the friars makes me feel closer to the Order. I love this app!!

Welcome to the Dominican family. We're glad you like the app. Please share it with others. Thanks for the review!
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.
Two things that I’d request:
1) allow the audio to continue playing even as I scroll. The pauses are disruptive.
2) bring in Latin as an option.
Keep up the good work!
