Premiered by the Grammy-nominated Choir of Trinity Wall Street and written in collaboration with noted American poet Victoria Chang, Agnus Dei is an a cappella movement from Mass, commissioned as part of Trinity Church’s long-term project Mass Reimaginings, a series celebrating the 45th Anniversary of the Bernstein Mass, as well as Bernstein’s 100th birthday, with five 21st-century takes on the traditional mass.
