This annual TMC concert, now on two nights, brings together contemplative music with the beautiful setting of St. Paul’s Basilica and has become a moment of calm and reflection for many.
Noel Edison uses the venue to great effect, placing the choir in different spaces to envelop patrons in glorious choral music.
This year’s program will include Vaughan Williams’ Mass in G Minor, works by Ēriks Ešenvalds, and three Ave Marias – by Rachmaninoff, Bruckner and Lukaszewski.

The parish of St. Paul’s was established in 1822 and the current building was completed in 1889. The dramatic Conversion of St. Paul painting was done in 1893 and the ceiling paintings of the life of St. Paul were done in 1911 by G. Caroselli. See a map of the topics of the ceiling paintings.
“To have the sound wash over me in soft or in crashing tidal waves, is both moving and stimulating. Noel Edison’s leadership continues to elicit the best from the Choir which is both exciting and heavenly. Loved every moment!”
