5* Review from The Times

Posted on 23 July 2019

On Monday 15th July, we performed our signature Russian Treasures programme to a packed St. Bartholomew-the-Great. The Times reviewed it and have this to say:

“The night was launched by Rachmaninov selections, couched in long phrases and the creamiest of harmonies, perfect for spotlighting Tenebrae’s smooth velvet tone singing legato, the voice parts immaculately blended. Equally astounding were the fierce fortissimos, blazing so hard in settings of Alleluias that I thought we might need the church’s fire buckets. The peak was reached in Rachmaninov’s majestic setting of Blessed is the Man, the most perfect demonstration of the choir’s two watchwords, almost their slogan: passion, precision… Long may this choir continue to shine light into the world’s darkness.”
