Mother and Child

Mother and Child

This is a distinctive and distinguished collection of works by a number of living composers, many of whom have established themselves at the creative forefront of the choral scene in recent times. The centre-piece of the disc is a new commission – Mother and Child – by Tenebrae from the world acclaimed composer Sir John Tavener.


On the evidence of this album, Tenebrae’s fan-base deserves to extend to anyone inspired by excellent choral singing

Classical FM Magazine

This is a CD of exceptional stature. It seems to me that everything about it – performances, documentation, sound quality and, above all, the music itself – is of the highest quality

John Quinn, MusicWeb International

…an ensemble with enviable standards of power and precision and a remarkable range of colours thanks to the mixture of voices.
