Candlelit Compline Trinity Church will offer a candlelit Compline service featuring one of the largest and most powerful works of the 16th century, John Sheppard’s rarely-performed masterpiece “Media vita.” A hauntingly beautiful reflection on life and mortality for six-part choir, the work is a remarkable feat for the time due to its emotive effect and liturgical function. Music for the Sunday, Feb. 28, 7 p.m. service will be offered by Trinity’s choral scholars joined by an ensemble of professional singers from the Boston area. For more information, call 401-846-0660 or visit trinitynewport.org.
