CONCERTS AND EVENTS
ADORATION OF THE MAGI
Friday, December 14, 2018 at 7:30 pm in the Chapel
Jeff Morrissey, Baritone, and Bill Trafka, pianist returned to St. Bartholomew’s intimate chapel this season with his popular Christmas program inspired by the elegant paintings found in the South Chapel of St. Bartholomew’s. In 1919 Ethel Parsons Paullin and her husband Telford created the beautiful Adoration of the Magi and the 13 medallions surrounding it depicting subjects connected with the Nativity of Christ.
Morrissey, whose voice The New York Times has called “a ringing baritone and first rate,” highlighted the artwork weaving passages from the Bible with Polish carols, spirituals and ballads from his own Southern Appalachian Mountains and presented a visual and musical telling of the Christmas story.
