MetLiveArts: Handel & Lang

Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra 
Julian Wachner, conductor

The Grammy-nominated Choir of Trinity Wall Street—"blazing with vigour…a choir from heaven" (The Times, London)— returns to The Met with a stunning double bill. Dixit Dominus (The Lord Said), Handel's powerful setting of Psalm 110, is paired with David Lang's Pulitzer Prize-winning The Little Match Girl Passion, a "tender and mysterious" (The New York Times) contemporary choral work based on the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale.

Tickets include Museum admission.
