Susana Phillips. Met Opera soprano. O Nuit Divine. Indeed it was. Paul Winter’s sax. Hark the Herald Angels Sing! Silent Night. Candles. Holy Night. Christmas Eve Midnight Mass. Cathedral of St. John the Divine.
O Night Divine. Gloriously sung in French by soprano Susanna Phillips at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. Applause wafted up the aisle. Couldn’t help it. Capped off last night’s Christmas Eve service with choirs and horns and harps and a Paul Winter sax solo. And. The most haunting organ crescendo Harking the Herald of Angels. Transported. Second annual tradition with Ben.
Inclusive Episcopalian congregation. A little political. But. No kneeling!
