Path of Miracles & Footsteps

Path of Miracles & Footsteps

Path of Miracles, for a cappella choir, by Joby Talbot was commissioned by Tenebrae and premiered in 2005. The work is based on the most enduring route of Catholic pilgrimage – the great Pilgrimage to Santiago. The four movements of Path of Miracles are titled with the names of the four main staging posts of the ‘Camino Frances’:

I Roncesvalles
II Burgos
III Leon
IV Santiago

To mark Tenebrae’s fifteenth-anniversary season in 2016-17, the choir has commissioned a new work by Owain Park, Footsteps, which allows choirs of all abilities to perform alongside Tenebrae. Tenebrae is delighted to be joined by the Fellows of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain for this recording.
