With the juxtaposition of the English Madrigal School of the Elizabethan Age and the English Pastoral School of the first half of the 20th century, Tenebrae and Nigel Short reveal astonishing musical affinities with our first appearance at the Brucknerhaus in Linz. Texts by Shakespeare link classics of the choral repertoire throughout the British Choral tradition, ending with Benjamin Britten’s Choral Dances from his opera Gloriana, premiered in 1952 for the coronation of Elizabeth II.


Programme includes music by:

William Byrd, John Dowland, John Wilbye, Orlando Gibbons, Edward Elgar, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Gustav Holst, Gerald Finzi, Herbert Murrill, Benjamin Britten

Venue & Address:

Mittlere Saal, Brucknerhaus Linz, 876V+56, Linz, Austria
