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 celebration of choral settings encompasses the richest of styles, scorings and moods. The seemingly unlimited inventiveness of the musical arrangers leaves no vocal trick uncovered, and dispenses with the need for any instruments. Let the voices sing you their own backing with the big band sound, bells, hurdy-gurdy and shawms, syncopated jazz rhythms and bluesy lullabies.

“This may be new repertoire for the group but in many ways it’s classic Tenebrae – faultless tuning and perfect blend.” – Gramophone Magazine
