Boasting an "engrossing" and "enviable variety of repertory" (The New York Times), Trinity Wall Street's Twelfth Night Festival returns in 2015-16 to celebrate the twelve days of the nativity with a full program of mostly free events—at St. Paul's Chapel and Trinity Church—from December 26 through January 6. As Trinity has become an epicenter for both early and new music, this year's festival, aptly subtitled "Time's Arrow," recovers the past as composers reach for the musical unknown. The juxtaposition of music spanning the past millennium—from Handel's Messiah and Bach cantatas to the premieres of works by Daniel Felsenfeld and David Lang—is sure to have a lasting impact on returning and new concertgoers alike.
