Singing with the Trinity Choir & Baroque Orchestra

December 19, 2011

I absolutely love this time of the year and the wonderful music we get to perform.  Recently, I had the opportunity to sing, Handel’sMessiah” at Trinity Church with the Trinity Choir and Baroque Orchestra.  This piece was conducted by Julian Wachner and reviewed by Heidi Waleson of the “Wall Street Journal“.  Ms. Waleson had the following to say:

Take the alto aria “He was despised.” It can run 10 minutes or more, and feel endless its many repeats. But with subtle details, countertenor Ryland Angel and the Trinity violins, led by concertmaster Robert Mealy (who was key to the spirit of this performance), turned it into a nuanced picture of the Passion of Christ.”

And, “Part I began with a swinging overture and maintained sprightly tempi and bright colors throughout, befitting the optimism of its subject: the annunciation of the birth of Christ. “Oh thou that tellest” was a speedy, joyful exultation as Mr. Angel, the chorus, and the fierce violins threw themselves into its dancelike rhythms.”
