Choir of Trinity Wall Street performed “Mass for 8-voice A Capella” in a dimly lit St. Ignatius Monday evening and brought the church to life! The group was clearly deserving of their 2013 Grammy award nomination as demonstrated through their use of deep low notes and air piercing high notes which harmonized effortlessly. Under the direction of Grammy award winner Julian Wachner, the group aimed to execute a dramatic fusion of different languages, ideas, beliefs and ‘confessions’. Throughout this unique performance, the songs gradually increased in volume and depth. Each song was also followed by a moment of silence, so the audience could let the hymn sink in and reflect on the religious meaning. The surrounding community made a strong presence filling nearly all pews for this Ritual of the Mass. Boston College wishes the Choir of Trinity Wall Street best of luck in the upcoming performances around the globe!
