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.
In 2013, Trinity presented celebrated favorites and rarely performed works by the versatile and prolific composer Benjamin Britten in honor of his 100th birthday. As part of the global celebration, Britten 100, coordinated by the Britten-Pears Foundation, Britten's works were weaved into Trinity's liturgical services, Bach at One and Concerts at One, and special evening concert events throughout the 2013 fall season. To kick-off our Britten rebroadcasts, today’s Comfort at One features former members of The Choir of Trinity Wall Street: baritone Christopher Dylan Herbert, tenor Steven Caldicott Wilson, and pianist Timothy Long, performing Britten’s Who are these children and Folksongs, alongside Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder.
