Gramophone praise for Medieval Chant and Tallis Lamentations

Posted on 30th 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.

Due to the ongoing movement restrictions in the UK due to the spread of COVID-19, physical CD orders may take longer than normal to arrive.

You can still purchase tracks and albums for download for much of our back catalogue on our website.
