ADORATION OF THE MAGI
Friday, December 16, 2016 at 7:30 pm in the Chapel

Jeff Morrissey, Baritone, and William Trafka, Pianist, returned this season with their popular Christmas program inspired by the elegant paintings found in the South Chapel of St. Bartholomew’s.

Adoration of Magi MorrisseyIn 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 by weaving passages from the Bible with Polish carols, spirituals and ballads from his own Southern Appalachian Mountains presenting a visual and musical telling of the Christmas story.
