We’re delighted to announce the winner of our Locus Iste Choir Competition: the very talented Epiphoni Consort!
Epiphoni Consort are a London-based chamber ensemble conducted by Tim Reader, who perform choral music of all eras and styles across London’s great churches and halls. We very much look forward to working with them for a special collaborative performance of Anton Bruckner’s beautiful ‘Locus Iste’. You can listen to their winning entry here.
To see the choir in action with Tenebrae, come along to our Brahms and Bruckner Motets CD launch concert on 12th November at St James’s Church, Spanish Place, London. Tickets can be purchased from just £5 and are available from the Barbican website.
Locus Iste Choir Competition
In association with Classic FM and generously sponsored by Edition Peters Ltd., Tenebrae was delighted to launch a competition which allows one talented and lucky choir to be invited to perform with the choir in the concert on Thursday 12th November. Choirs were invited to submit a simple audio recording of Bruckner’s ‘Locus Iste’ which was judged by Tenebrae’s Artistic Director, Nigel Short.
Speaking of the competition, Nigel Short said,“It was hugely enjoyable to listen to all the competition entries! There were many excellent interpretations demonstrating the astonishingly high standard of choral singing throughout the UK and we are delighted to be celebrating that talent with The Epiphoni Consort on November 12th.”
Thank you to all those who took part in the competition.
