The Program

Humanity has long wrestled with our seeming powerlessness, especially when it comes to changing the past. From this arises a common desire for redemption. The Choir of Trinity Wall Street explores the relationship between these two states of being, as captured by composers from Josquin des Prez and Rameau to Britten and Ives.

“Let the waters’ current not sweep me away
           and let not the deep swallow me,
                       and let the Pit not close its mouth on me.”
– from Psalm 69:16 (translation by Robert Alter)
