Tenebrae returns to Basel with a concert bringing its trademark passion and precision to a range of seasonal music by some of the most exciting choral composers of our time, from Owain Park’s haunting setting of O magnum Mysterium to the touching simplicity of Elizabeth Poston’s The Apple Tree. A highlight of the programme is Edward Naylor’s impetuous anthem Vox dicentis.
