Celebrating 15 years of dramatic programming, flawless performances and unforgettable experiences

Path of Miracles by Joby Talbot was the first major work commissioned by the award-winning professional vocal ensemble, Tenebrae, in 2005 and having received high acclaim (“an evocative odyssey” – The Times) returns this year for an extensive UK tour.  To accompany its revival, Tenebrae has commissioned a unique new choral work by Owain Park, Footsteps, which allows Tenebrae to perform alongside choirs near its touring locations and marks Tenebrae’s fifteenth-anniversary season.

Path of Miracles is a work based on the most enduring route of Catholic pilgrimage, the great Pilgrimage to Santiago. Candlelight, singing from memory and an imaginative use of the concert space guarantees Tenebrae at its dramatic best.

Joby Talbot’s ambitious a cappella Path of Miracles is little short of a musical miracle in itself… It is a tour de force and absolutely stunning

Choir and Organ Magazine

One of the most memorable and moving concert experiences of my life… this was an extremely significant musical and spiritual event in people’s lives.

Meurig Bowen (Director, Cheltenham Music Festival, 2007-2017)

… epic, mystical quality – charged with the same sacred energy that draws listeners to the music of John Tavener and Arvo Pärt

Gramophone Magazine

This is perhaps the best choral performance I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing.

Classic Melbourne
