One event on Sun, December 22, 2019 at 3:00 pm

St. Paul’s Chapel, Broadway and Fulton Street
new york,

Messiah and Trinity have a long history—Trinity presented one of the first performances in North America in 1770, and The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra are still widely regarded as some of the greatest interpreters of the work. The New York Times described Trinity’s presentation as “perhaps the essential New York ‘Messiah.’ With the church’s choir and the Trinity Baroque Orchestra, Mr. Wachner provides gritty, gutsy, edge-of-the-seat performances.”

The Church of St. Luke in the Fields, Manhattan, 487 Hudson St.
New York, NY 10014 United States

The Church of St. Luke in the Fields, Manhattan, 487 Hudson St.
New York, NY 10014 United States

This concert will shed a new light on the great Italian composer Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, offering two masterpieces, lost for almost 300 years, in their first modern editions.  These new editions of the Mass in D major and the motet Dignas Laudes  are the outcome of recent musicological research carried out by the Centro Studi Pergolesi in Milan, and show a facet of Pergolesi – his energetic and solemn character – that complements and amplifies the dramatic and introspective moods of his most renowned…
