Trinity Church’s Messiah
Tuesday, December 15, 2009
David Garland hosts a performance of George Frideric Handel's Messiah by New York's Trinity Baroque Orchestra and the Trinity Choir.
Led by guest conductor Jane Glover and concertmaster Robert Mealy, Trinity's performance of this perennial favorite is considered by critics to be the "one to beat” in New York each December.
The Messiah's incredibly rich oratorio features an elaborate mix of chorus, soloists, and orchestra that is best heard live. And that's how we are presenting it--recorded live at Trinity Church on December 13. Messiah received its New World premiere at Trinity Church in 1770.
