Available Now – Tenebrae Unlocked

Posted on 18th November 2020

The first concert in our new film series Tenebrae Unlocked is now available to stream online! Click here to purchase your ticket.

The programmes we have chosen reflect much of the music that Tenebrae has performed and recorded over the last 20 years, and include one or two works which deserve to be far better-known than they are. We hope you will enjoy these sequences, performed just as we would hope to sing them in concert. Tenebrae would like to thank each and every person who donated through our crowdfunding campaign, as well as those who offer ongoing support. This simply would not have been possible without you!

Our programme begins with Tallis’ well-known motet If ye love me, with the promised ‘comforter’ echoed in Lassus’ Musica Dei donum optimi – speaking of music affording solace to all. Byrd’s famous, two-part motet Ne irascaris Domine continues the sense of ebb and flow, and Tomás Luis de Victoria’s settings of the Responsories for Holy Saturday parallels its call of ‘Ecce, respice’. Usually the hymn-like prequel to Victoria’s Requiem, Taedet anima mea takes on a new role here, closing our programme with a sense of reflection and solidarity.
