A week in the life of: Anna Semple – Associate Artist (alto)

29 September 2023

The first week of September has come as a bit of a shock after a relatively quiet August involving holidays, a house-move and a light smattering of church work. Like most freelancers, singing (though filling most of my time) is not the only work I do. I also work as a freelance composer, and August… continued

Nigel’s Blog: August 2023

23 August 2023

Another year is racing away, and I am grasping every opportunity for a rest these days between the many engagements our brilliant team manages to organise for us! At the end of May we were finally able to record some of the great motets by J. S. Bach, alongside some wonderfully dramatic and intense works… continued


Congratulations to our Partner Schools

25 July 2023

Congratulations to pupils and teachers at Clifton and Tudor Primary Schools in Southall, West London, who have undertaken their first full year on our singing programme. We have been so proud to shape their journey over the past 12 months – from hearing a choir for the very first time, to singing along with us…. continued


On the big screen

22 May 2023

We were delighted to visit London’s Abbey Road Studios last summer, for a very special recording session with the composer Simon Franglen. Simon is an iconic composer for film and contemporary music, tasked with scoring the Avatar films. We were thrilled to contribute Tenebrae’s vocals to Avatar 2 The Way of Water – which has already become… continued


James Bowman

28 March 2023

Nigel shares his memories of the inspirational countertenor James Bowman, who passed away yesterday afternoon. “Immense sadness today to hear of the loss of one of my earliest musical inspirations, countertenor James Bowman. Listening to a recording of James singing the alto arias from Handel’s Messiah on a recording made in King’s College Chapel had… continued

Nigel’s Blog: March 2023

23 March 2023

It’s been quite a while since I wrote a blog, but in fairness these last 8 months or so have been action-packed. Not all of it quite the kind of action I would have wished for, but life has been anything but dull. As many of you will know, last summer I was diagnosed with… continued


Associate Artist Blog: January 2023 – Jack Granby, Tenor

19 January 2023

Since starting as an Associate Artist with Tenebrae in September, I have been lucky enough to perform with them in Germany, Austria, France, the Netherlands and America, as well as in fantastic venues here in the UK. Our tour to Berlin and Linz was memorable for a few reasons – most notably Nigel’s absence during… continued

US Tour Blog: Doodle in Dallas – Anna Semple

17 November 2022

Still reeling from Jenga-related highs, coaches were boarded for Dallas early on Saturday morning with the hope of arriving just in time for the consumption of an offensive amount of BBQ. Dallas did not disappoint. After what can only be described as an unholy feast for the senses, we began preparations for concert number 5… continued

US Tour Blog: Joe Blogs – Joey Edwards

11 November 2022

A missile welded to the roof of a camper van is not a usual sight to see from the tour-bus window. We overtook it on the freeway just outside Bethlehem, PA. Today, we drove about six hours from Morristown to Harrisonburg for our next concert at James Madison University. Travel days are never glamorous and… continued

US Tour Blog: Princeton – Rachel Haworth

8 November 2022

Day 2 of tour kicked off with an early start in order to make our flight from Orlando to Newark. We were on our way to Princeton and very excited about it! Free Wi-Fi and a choice of complimentary snacks helped the flight pass rather quickly, along with the incredible views of New York City… continued


US Tour Blog: Golf & Gators – Hannah King

7 November 2022

After a long flight to Tampa we drove from the airport to our hotel in Orlando – usually this wouldn’t warrant a mention in the blog, but as we were driving we were treated to views of spectacular fireworks from the happiest place on earth – a nice way to start our time in the… continued
