Queen of Heaven

Buy Tickets

Award-winning choir Tenebrae presents a wide-ranging programme of music composed for the Virgin Mary.

Over the centuries, the Queen of Heaven has inspired countless artists to create some of their most exquisite masterpieces, and this collection is one of dramatic contrasts. The richness of Bruckner and Grieg is juxtaposed with the serenity of Gregorian chant, and Parsons’ sixteenth-century setting of the Ave Maria sits alongside Bruckner’s high Romantic interpretation of the same text.

For purity and precision of tone and flawless intonation, Nigel Short’s chamber choir Tenebrae is pretty much unbeatable.” The Times
