The Guardian: Concert review for Chant by Candlelight and Tallis Lamentations

Posted on 19th March 2014

Tenebrae Consort have received a wonderful Guardian review for their Chant by Candlelight and Tallis Lamentations concert from Guy Dammann:

“Performed with one voice per part, the sense of earnestness was heightened by the contrasting individual qualities of each voice, the thick, rich countertenor David Allsopp soaring above the two tenors Guy Cutting and Nicholas Madden, and the hard-edged, mysterious baritone of Gabriel Crouch, all supported by the effortlessly smooth and mellifluous low bass of William Gaunt. But the exceptional quality of the performance came as much from the way it was set as from the fine singing, and the way in which Short replicated as faithfully as possible the experience of presenting the piece in its traditional liturgical setting.”
