Music of Reflection and Resilience

This summer, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine named Kent Tritle as its new Director of Cathedral Music and Organist. On Friday, Sept. 9, he made his public debut with the professional Cathedral Choir with a special program in The Greene Space. This week's episode is a re-broadcast of that performance.

Capturing the power of music to provide solace, inspiration and hope, selections include a cappella and accompanied works by Bach, Mendelssohn and Tallis, as well asĀ The Best Beloved, a composition by longtime Trinity Church choir member Chris DeBlasio.

Thanks for your comments. David Smith's piece had been inadvertently omitted from an edited version but it has now been restored. Our apologies for the oversight.

I heard David Smith's beautiful Lux Aeterna on the original broadcast and was hoping to hear it again on this archive edition. Sadly your replay begins after Mr. Smith's piece has already ended. Can this be corrected? I'd love to hear his piece again. Thank you for this moving program.

Where is David Smith's, "Lux Aeterna"? I was really hoping to hear it on the broadcast and in the notes above. I did hear that it was played and acknowledged at the beginning of the program. So why was it left out??
