To honor Wilbur Held, former organist/choirmaster of Trinity Church who died on March 24th at the age of 100, the Trinity Choir will perform a  number of Dr. Held’s anthems during the 10:30 a.m. liturgy this Sunday, May 3.
Wilbur served at Trinity Church from 1948 to 1978.  His legacy here includes the excellent Trinity Choir of mixed voices with professional choristers—before that there had been a choir of men and boys at Trinity Church.  The Casavant organ was installed and dedicated to him in 1970.
