Trinity celebrates the release of six major recordings this year and reflects on a legacy of commissioning, premiering, and recording multiple new works that Trinity Church Wall Street helped pioneer and develop, including three that won the Pulitzer Prize in Music. Many of these works’ thematic materials focus on Trinity’s core values and mission, exploring issues ranging from climate change and water justice to human trafficking and gender equality. This long weekend of events showcases these works alongside Trinity’s quintessential performances of early and sacred music.
