We are delighted to return to Wiesbaden this summer, with a programme celebrating Holst, Howells, Vaughan Williams and Parry; the finest exponents of 20th century English choral music.
The attention to phrasing, balance and dynamics was impeccable and enjoyable to watch as Nigel Short guided his forces to produce exciting jubilant sounds. Tenebrae cast such an enchanting spell that nobody moved a muscle between pieces, holding the memory, with the audience seeming to instinctively treat each half as a continuous musical experience.” – Bachtrack
Gustav Holst – The Evening-Watch
Judith Bingham – A Walk with Ivor Gurney
Herbert Howells – Requiem
Ralph Vaughan Williams – Valiant for Truth
Hubert Parry – Songs of Farewell
