Tenebrae’s latest recording, Russian Treasures, featured on BBC Radio 3’s CD Review on Sunday 19th January. The disc received a glowing review from presenter Andrew McGregor, who labeled it “seriously impressive”.
He went on to say:
“Tenebrae boasts basses that can descend to subterranean bottom Bs and a quality of timbre and ensemble that is second to none. Beautiful singing… Relishing every gentle harmonic turn of the music… Superb ensemble, intonation and control… A recording with a distant radiance that enfolds you. Really special singing.”
