Allegri: Miserere

Allegri: Miserere

Allegri’s haunting Miserere is the central point in a journey through music of longing and entreaty, hope and faith. These works spanning the centuries are chosen from the heart of Tenebrae’s concert repertoire.

This album is a must for all connoisseurs of the finest unaccompanied choral singing… Tenebrae reveals itself as one of those exceptional choirs whose individual singers have been moulded into a single superbly sensitive and responsible musical instrument. The mood of each piece is captured to perfection… This is an outstanding performance, which reflects every expressive nuance in both poem and music

The Daily Telegraph

Tenebrae are on top form… Once again, Tenebrae have put together a programme that ranges from the Renaissance to the 21st century with no sense of strain

Gramophone

Another winner from Tenebrae!

MusicWeb International

Nigel Short and Tenebrae have just the right balance of control and passion, reverence and exuberance that makes for such a superb performance

The Organ

The disc ends with that locus classicus of English choral singing, Faire is the Heaven, in which one would be forgiven for thinking Spenser’s final words, ‘such endlesse perfectnesse’ refer to the choir themselves rather than the state of Heaven.

BBC Music Magazine

It’s beautifully sung, a wonderful disc
