A Very English Christmas


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.

It is probably superfluous to say that the performances by Tenebrae are top class – but they are – Music Web International

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

This uplifting album captures all the passion and precision for which the choir is renowned – The Lady
