“As sung by the OSNY, it was thrilling, absolutely riveting. Mr. Tritle whipped his forces into a violent crowd one minute, and the next they were a (select) choir of Angels in an exquisite double chorus.”

“Most important, with Mr. Tritle at the helm, quality and quantity are equal.”

“…a visceral performance”

“The first chorus, climaxing with the phrase ‘Let there be light’ was simply thrilling, with the singers of the Oratorio Society rising over the orchestra in a powerful surge of sound.”

“The star of the show, the Oratorio Society’s chorus, rang out gloriously—pitch-perfect—the singers radiantly persevering the masterpiece that is Handel’s Messiah.”

“It was a pleasure to hear the Oratorio Society’s splendid performance of Mozart’s beguiling arrangement under Mr. Tritle.”

“What mattered most, of course, was the fine music-making.”

“The chorus of nearly 200 voices sounded rich and full-bodied but never forced, and won the biggest, and deserved, ovation.”

“a beautifully blended,
thoroughly unified sound”

“the sheer energy of the society’s sound had an enveloping fervor”

“As I have learned to expect from the acclaimed OSNY, choral blend was outstanding.”
