A Hymn of Heavenly Beauty

A Hymn of Heavenly Beauty

Making their debut at The Bridgewater Hall, Tenebrae bring us music that celebrates some of the finest choral works from the Renaissance to the present day, ranging from the haunting Allegri Miserere Mei, Deus to Eric Whitacre’s resplendent I thank you God. These works showcase the rich dark sounds of the Russian orthodox, the prayerful intimacy of contemporary English masters and the soaring contrapuntal lines of the late Renaissance. Closing with Harris’ spectacular Faire is the Heaven, this programme is a true homage to choral greats past and present.
