Some of the most atmospheric music from the numerous Liturgical settings in Holy Week is that composed for the Office of
Tenebrae. Victoria’s are the most well-known, but equally beautiful and arguably more dramatic are the settings composed by
Gesualdo and Couperin. The Gesualdo is intense with the Couperin atmospheric, yet both compliment each other perfectly on
another world-class recording from Tenebrae.
Described as “phenomenal” (The Times) and “devastatingly beautiful” (Gramophone Magazine), award-winning choir Tenebrae,
under the direction of Nigel Short, is one of the world’s leading vocal ensembles renowned for its passion and precision. These are
Tenebrae’s core values and with their continued dedication to performance of the highest quality, Tenebrae’s vision is to deliver
dramatic programming, flawless performances and unforgettable experiences, allowing audiences around the world to be moved
by the power and intimacy of the human voice.
