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. For more about the work’s creation, watch the pre-concert discussion about the piece with Newman, Chang, and Trinity Wall Street’s Director of Music and the Arts Julian Wachner…or enjoy a video of the premiere performance below!

Press

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.
