Jeff Morrissey, Baritone, returns to St. Bartholomew’s intimate chapel this season with his popular Christmas program inspired by the elegant paintings found in the South Chapel of St. Bartholomew’s. In 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 calls “a ringing baritone and first rate,” will highlight the artwork weaving passages from the Bible with Polish carols, spirituals
and ballads from his own Southern Appalachian Mountains to present a visual and musical telling of the Christmas story.
