Sun, Moon, Sea and Stars: Album Launch

Sun, Moon, Sea and Stars: Album Launch

Described as “a contemporary hero of British choral music” (The Observer), Bob Chilcott is one of today’s most influential and celebrated British choral composers. Tenebrae Consort is delighted to present a superb collection of Chilcott’s original works and arrangements at the London A Cappella Festival, exploring the richest of styles, scorings and moods. Enter this world of choral song though the ages in all its guises, and be enchanted. You can pre-order Tenebrae Consort’s new album featuring this repertoire here.

This concert is kindly supported by Oxford University Press.

Not to be missed: The Swingles’ Edward Randell will lead a free pre-concert talk with Bob Chilcott and Tenebrae’s Artistic Director, Nigel Short, at 19:15 in the St Pancras Room, Kings Place.
