Trinity Wall Street - Greatest Messiah Ever

I was on the edge of my seat shedding tears of joy and astonishment as voice after voice, rhythm after rhythm just kept pouring every imaginable emotion.  Julian Wachner gets it and allows everyone in the orchestra and chorus to get it also. 

I went with two people who had never heard the work before.  I have heard it too many times, but never like this.  They were overwhelmed.  So was I.  It is due to be broadcast later this month on WQXR.  Don't miss it.  I heard part of last year's broadcast, that's how I knew it would be worth every cent to be in the room with that happening.
