AGO Atlanta

Johns Creek United Methodist Church

Peerless, Grammy-nominated interpreters of both early and new music, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street has redefined the realm of 21st-century vocal music, breaking new ground with an artistry described as “blazing with vigour…a choir from heaven” (The Times, London). Under the direction of Julian Wachner, this premier ensemble leads liturgical music on Sundays at Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel, while performing in “Bach + One,” “Compline by Candlelight,” “Time’s Arrow,” and many other concerts and festivals throughout the year.

In this showcase concert for the American Guild of Organists' National Convention in Atlanta, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street performs a varied program including works by Finzi, McDowall, Sowerby, Howells, and the world premiere of Julian's piece, My Cathedral, an AGO commission.

Gerald Finzi: God is gone up, Op. 27, No. 2

Trevor Weston: Ashes

Cecilia McDowall: Adoro te devote

Leo Sowerby: Psalm 122 “I Was Glad”
