A Walk with Ivor Gurney is released!

Posted on 19th October 2018

We are very proud to share that our newest release, A Walk with Ivor Gurney, celebrating the music of Ivor Gurney and his contemporaries, has now been released. The disc also features the premiere recording of Judith Bingham’s A Walk with Ivor Gurney, a piece we commissioned and premiered in 2013. We successfully raised the funding we needed to complete this project through a crowdfunding campaign earlier this year, and we are really excited to be able to share the finished product with you!

The disc entered the classical music chart at no. 4 in the first week. Review highlights include:

“This imaginatively conceived and superbly executed programme is a wonderful way to honour one of the most tragic figures in twentieth-century British music. Tenebrae have done the memory of Ivor Gurney proud.” MusicWeb International

“Nigel Short’s peerless Tenebrae singers, backed by the Aurora Orchestra, offer nothing but sorrowful beauty and multiple reasons to give thanks.” The Times

“A nourishing, thoughtfully compiled release… On this premiere recording, Sarah Connolly teams up with Tenebrae under Nigel Short’s watchful lead to give a performance of breathtaking composure, spine-tingling atmosphere and palpable conviction.” Gramophone Magazine
