Comfort at One: Spire and Shadow

January 4, 2022

Today’s Comfort at One: Twelfth Night Festival edition is Spire and Shadow, commissioned by Trinity Church Wall Street and written for Downtown Voices and NOVUS NY. 

Spire and Shadow, which premiered at Trinity in January 2017, celebrates the 250th anniversary of the opening of St. Paul's Chapel, combining colorful and vibrant new music by Zachary Wadsworth with powerful poems about New York City, spanning five centuries.

This major work explores the history of our church, the city of New York, and the many residents who have lived, loved, suffered, toiled, and triumphed here.
