Music of the Spheres: Tenebrae Unlocked

Virtual Events
  • Friday 1st January 2021
  • 7:00 pm

We are delighted to introduce Tenebrae Unlocked, a new series of short concerts filmed in October 2020 in the church of St Augustine’s Kilburn – sometimes referred to as the ‘Cathedral of North London’. After a very difficult year, it was an immense joy to be able to spend three days working with our wonderful singers and a world-class production team on this stunning series of films.

The programmes we have chosen reflect much of the music that Tenebrae has performed and recorded over the last 20 years, and include one or two works which deserve to be far better-known than they are. We hope you will enjoy these sequences, performed just as we would hope to sing them in concert. Tenebrae would like to thank each and every person who donated through our crowdfunding campaign, as well as those who offer ongoing support. This simply would not have been possible without you!

We are pleased to present at atmospheric selection of popular highlights from our collection of English repertoire, including music by Phillip Moore, Judith Bingham and Stanford to open 2021.

The Tenebrae Unlocked series programme is available here

Tickets will be available through our online shop from 7pm GMT on 1st January 2021. Each ticket allows unlimited access to stream this film for 30 days through your account, and supports Tenebrae as we face ongoing performance cancellations, and a significant loss of income as a result of the pandemic. Tenebrae Unlocked series tickets are also available. For series ticket-holders, the film will appear in the ‘Your Films’ page once you have signed into your account.
