Sun, Moon, Sea and Stars

Sun Moon, Sea and Stars is an international collection of original works and arrangements by Bob Chilcott and some of his most talented colleagues from the choral world, such as Alexander L’estrange and Peter Knight. This wide-ranging collection of choral settings encompasses archetypal English folk song, and new versions of French, Finnish and Japanese traditional melodies alongside classics from the Great American Songbook, all packaged in the richest of styles, scorings and moods. Enter this world of choral song in all its guises, and be enchanted by the virtuosity of the music.
This concert features a small ensemble of singers handpicked from the award-winning choir Tenebrae, focusing on repertoire originally conceived for consort performance. An exceptional group of musicians known for their combination of instinctive ensemble skills and masterful solo abilities, these singers demonstrate the vocal quality of the individuals who make up the trademark ‘Tenebrae’ sound whilst creating an intimate concert experience.
