This week I bid farewell to Tenebrae for the foreseeable future as I’m off into the strange new world of furlough. My Tenebrae track for the playlist is the final movement of Joby Talbot’s Path of Miracles: ‘Santiago’. It’s my all-time favourite piece performed by Tenebrae and seeing it live really brings it to life – the storytelling and our signature movement around the venue is so integral it really is the only way to see it. The choir’s performance in Santiago de Compostela last September was truly one of the most emotionally charged concerts I’ve ever had the privilege to be part of – the ‘Herr, Santiago’ at about 10 minutes in brings tears to my eyes every time.
Whilst in lock-down I’m determined to get back into playing the piano and although I’m a million miles away from being capable of this, Chopin’s Ballade No 1 in G minor certainly gives me something to aim for. I’ll otherwise be filling my time with copious amounts of tea, finally reading all those books on the shelf and tending to my ever-growing succulent army. Au revoir for now!
