WQXR's Interview with Conductor Jane Glover

Monday, December 14, 2009

George Frideric Handel's Messiah was first performed at New York's Trinity Church in 1770. The church has been reviving the tradition of performing Handel's Messiah within its walls each December.

British conductor Jane Glover takes the baton in this year's performance.

Glover has conducted Handel's Messiah at least 70 times, and is at work on a new book on Handel. She is also the author of Mozart's Women.

WQXR's Jeff Spurgeon spoke with Glover ahead of the Sunday concert. Click below to listen to Glover conducting at Trinity on December 13.
