FRIDAY 20 MAY 2022      TENEBRAE (vocal ensemble)

 

Tenebrae presents Easter virtual choir performance on BBC Four - Classical  Music

        

For purity and precision of tone, and flawless intonation, Nigel Short’s chamber choir Tenebrae is pretty much unbeatable.

The Times

Under the direction of Nigel Short, Tenebrae has won many prestigious awards for its interpretations of choral music from the Renaissance to contemporary masterpieces.

 

The programme is called Spanish Glories of the Sixteenth Century with Victoria’s wonderful Requiem, 1605 as its centrepiece. There will also be selections from Victoria’s Tenebrae Responsories and Lamentions for Holy Saturday and Lobo’s Versa est in luctum.
