Watch Chris Herbert in Britten tribute

Chris Herbert & Timothy Long on the Martha Stewart weddings site
A few months ago we posted about the upcoming bicentenary tribute to British composer Benjamin Britten. The November 26th concert with barihunk Chris Herbert and his husband Timothy Long is already available online for viewing on the Trinity Wall Street  website. It's a wonderful performance with a great preface to the music provide by the scholarly Herbert.

The ongoing festival is exploring the British composer’s orchestral, vocal and chamber works and continues into December.

On Thursday, December 12th at 1pm you can hear tenor Steven Caldicott Wilson and Timothy Long perform Britten's "Folksongs; Who are these children?" and Mahler's "Kindertotenlieder."

On Monday, December 30th at 1pm, you can catch Chris Herbert again at St. Paul’s Chapel (Broadway at Fulton) for a concert that includes Bach's Cantata BWV 125: "Mit Fried und Freud ich fahr dahin; BWV 10: Meine Seel erhebt den Herren" and Britten's "Canticle IV: Journey of the Magi." He'll be joined by tenor Steven Caldicott Wilson, countertenor Geoffrey Williams, the Trinity Baroque Orchestra; and Choir of Trinity Wall Street under the baton of Julian Wachner.
