BBC Music Magazine Award winning choir Tenebrae return to disc on Signum under the expert direction Nigel Short with a sumptuous album of Carols, Hymns and other celebratory works for Christmas.
"The programme has been shrewdly chosen and though it includes a sprinkling of familiar pieces there is a pleasing amount of music that is less well-known. More pleasing still, all the latter pieces prove to be well worth hearing. It is probably superfluous to say that the performances by Tenebrae are top class – but they are." Music Web International, November 2015
"Crystalline beauty…every voice part is constantly alert to the expressive possibilities of the music and crafts it all with care and musicality. The ensemble’s extensive experience…is belied by the disc’s youthful, festive joy" Sinfini, December 2015
"This uplifting album captures all the passion and precision for which the choir is renowned." The Lady, December 2015
