Event Description
Handel's Messiah - The Choir of Trinity Wall St

ONLINE TICKET SALES CLOSE at 12pm.  General admission seats will be available at the door this evening.  Get there early for best seats!


Handel’s Messiah and Trinity Wall Street have a long history – Trinity presented one of the first performances of the work in North America in 1770, and the Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra are still widely regarded as being among the greatest interpreters of the work. Year after year, The New York Times hails Trinity’s Messiah as one of the best, if not the best, in New York City.


Now, for the first time, Trinity comes to the Somerset Hills. The famous choir and orchestra will perform Handel's Messiah at St. Mary's Abbey at Delbarton, with Music in the Somerset Hills' founder and Artistic Director, Stephen Sands - himself a member of the Trinity Choir - as one of the featured soloists. This is an opportunity you will not want to miss!


2011: “Trinity’s [Messiah], largely on the strength of its extraordinary choir, pierced the heart. Dense yet light, with biting diction and dramatic dynamic shadings, the Trinity choir was particularly revelatory in the great, dark numbers of the oratorio’s second part.” — Zachary Woolfe, The New York Times


2012: “Led with both fearsome energy and delicate grace by Julian Wachner, the Trinity performance was .... to experience the full, formidable range of ‘Messiah,’ from the furious flames of the ‘refiner’s fire’ to the delirious party of the finale, next year let Trinity be your guide.” — Zachary Woolfe, The New York Times


2013: “At Trinity, Handel’s ‘Messiah .... becomes an act of communal affirmation. The recitatives and arias are sung by members of the choir, who take turns slipping out of the ranks to walk to the front of the orchestra for their solos... there was expressive sincerity in every solo as well as keen attention to the dramatic charges of the biblical texts.” — Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim, The New York Times
