Humanity & Liberty

20th Anniversary Tour

We are thrilled to return to Derry International Choir Festival in 2021 – this time in person with a live concert!

Tenebrae presents our twentieth anniversary programme: triumph over adversity is the theme as we showcase two brand new Tenebrae commissions for the first time in Northern Ireland, joining forces with the iconic actor Juliet Stevenson for this atmospheric programme interspersed with poetry by Emily Dickinson. Roderick Williams’ Lucis Creator Optime bookends this unique performance, featuring Into the Wreck by Josephine Stephenson and Francis Poulenc’s powerful and sensational choral cantata Figure Humaine.
