Welcome Letter from Kent Tritle

Kent Tritle

Please join me in my 13th season with Musica Sacra!

This chorus continues to set the gold standard in choral music – this year’s season ranges from the austere glory of Machaut’s Messe de Nostre Dame to the lushness of Bruckner’s Os Justi. Our two concerts at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine flank our annual performance of Handel’s Messiah at Carnegie Hall.

The first of our Cathedral concerts sets Machaut’s landmark mass setting alongside the exquisite polyphony of Josquin Des Prez. Our second Cathedral concert champions the music of Bach along with the German Romantics Bruckner and Rheinberger. Together with our beloved and always-revelatory performance of Messiah, you will hear an incredible breadth of great choral music, performed to the highest standards, in two of New York City’s most cherished venues.

Join us as a subscriber and save up to 20%! And please join us as a Friend of Musica Sacra. Your support above and beyond ticket sales make it possible for this splendid chorus to continue our most important work and art. It isn’t possible without you!

I look forward to seeing you at our concerts!


Kent Tritle, Music Director
