During trying times, music stills our souls and provides a healing grace. Throughout the spring, Comfort at One presents performances that are inspired by the Gandhi quote: “In the midst of darkness, light persists.” These concerts include light-inspired Bach cantatas, Pipes at One, choral meditations from The Choir of Trinity Wall Street, new performances from Downtown Voices, the Trinity Youth Chorus, and St. Paul’s Chapel Choir, and new virtual content on Fridays from our extended family of artists.
Each Monday-Friday at 1pm, we share new and archived performances on Facebook and Twitter and will post the most recent videos below. For past performances, browse the list below or visit our music video portal. We hope these performances help you find a daily haven of peace and comfort.
Today’s at-home performance of Comfort At One comes from versatile and stunning tenor, and Trinity's Downtown Voices Director, Stephen Sands. As a part of Music in the Somerset Hills where he is the Artistic Director, Stephen performs The Last Rose of Summer by Benjamin Britten.
