The Schola Cantorum of The London Oratory School is one of the leading liturgical choirs in Britain. The boys have recorded this music especially for use in Universalis.
Compline (Night Prayer) for Sundays, sung in Latin.
It is permitted to use Sunday’s Compline on any night in the week, so you can listen to this every night if you want. From personal experience I can recommend listening to it after turning out the light!
As with all the audio in Universalis, each line is highlighted as it is sung. Here is a short sample. Press the Play button, listen, and watch.
You don’t need an Internet connection while you are listening. Obviously the very first time you listen, you do need to be connected so that the app can download the music. But the app then stores the music for you, so you won’t ever need a connection again.
This music costs £3.99 (roughly $4.99 or €4.60). You can listen to a free sample before you buy.
If you have already bought the music, it will start to play at once and the display will show Latin and English in parallel, so that you can follow the Latin as it is sung.
If you haven’t yet bought the music, the Play button will make a menu pop up. Press “Listen to free sample” in the menu.
You will hear the final Marian antiphon – Salve regina, Regina caeli and so on, depending on the season.
If you haven’t yet bought the music, the Play button will make a menu pop up. Press “Find out more” in the menu.
A screen will appear giving details of the music, and also its price. If you want to buy, press the “Purchase” button and Google Play or the Amazon Appstore will handle your purchase.
If you have more than one Android device that uses Google Play [or the Amazon Appstore, if that is what you are using] then you won’t have to buy twice. Whatever is bought on one device becomes available on all the other devices that share the same account.
