Handel's Messiah

December 17, 2023

“Burning and gladdening, vivid in both darkness and light,” Trinity’s Messiah is “the gold standard” (The New York Times).

Watch this “transcendent and awe-inspiring” performance featuring The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra led by award-winning guest conductor Ryan James Brandau, recorded live in Trinity Church on December 15, 2023.

In a season full of Messiah concerts, Trinity’s is unique — distinctly modern yet authentically performed on period instruments in a sacred and acoustically rich space. A cherished holiday tradition that has captivated audiences since it was first presented by the church in 1770, this is the most historic Messiah in New York City.
