Award-winning vocal ensemble Tenebrae present some of the most exquisite works of the Renaissance alongside Allegri’s iconic Miserere – surely one of the most well-loved works in the choral canon. These stunning early works are complemented by the searing harmonic language of Sir James MacMillan’s own interpretation of the Miserere, filmed live in the atmospheric setting of St. Thomas’ church in Leipzig, Germany, where J. S. Bach is buried.
This concert is available to watch from anywhere on demand, until 14th May.
