Come celebrate the JOY of Christmas with the entire Parish family at our annual Christmas Eve Midnight Mass! Prior to Mass, the Holy Trinity Schola Cantorum will present a program of "Music of the Season" beginning at 11:30 P.M., featuring choral works by Francis Poulenc, Giovanni Gabrieli and John Rutter, as well as settings of favorite Christmas carols arranged for brass and organ.
Midnight Mass proper will feature time-honored congregational Christmas carols arranged for brass and organ by Sir David Willcocks, along with the
Missa Brevis in D Minor of New York composer James Bassi, and Bassi's
Wexford Carol, originally written for folk singer Judy Collins. Additional choral music by Willcocks, Michael Head, McNeil Robinson, with instrumental music by Louis-Claude Daquin, Marcel Dupré and Richard Purvis.
