7. SANCTUS / BENEDICTUS
8. AGNUS DEI
Premiered by the Grammy-nominated Choir of Trinity Wall Street and written in collaboration with noted American poet Victoria Chang, Mass was 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.
Mass premiered as part of Trinity Wall Street’s Total Embrace Festival.

This week, the winsome “Arias and Barcarolles” shares a program with a new Mass by Jonathan Newman, who, like Bernstein, distills the strains of pop, blues, and jazz into classical structures.
