Gramophone praise for Medieval Chant and Tallis Lamentations

Posted on 30 April 2014

Tenebrae Consort’s latest album on the Bene Arte label, Medieval Chant and Tallis Lamentations, has received a glowing review from Alexandra Coghlan in the May edition of Gramophone Magazine.  Speaking of the disc, Alexandra says: ”

“The fragility of the single voices (and the darker shades generated by these lower male-voice keys) summons a world of private, secret devotion, where abstract grief becomes the very real conflict of Catholics under a Protestant monarch.  Textures are translucent, each individual voice offering its own personal musical pleaThis is simplicity at once artful and artless – perfectly poised at the junction of recital and rite.”

You can read the full review in the latest edition of Gramophone, available from all good newsagents and on iPad.
