Award-winning choir Tenebrae presents a wide-ranging programme of music from the Renaissance to the present day. Featuring a number of familiar favourites, these works showcase the rich dark sound-world of the Russian orthodox, the prayerful intimacy of contemporary English masters and the soaring contrapuntal lines of the late Renaissance. Closing with Holst’s spectacular ‘Nunc Dimittis’, this programme is a true homage to choral greats past and present.

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