Mother and Child


Signum Records is delighted to announce  the release of Tenebrae’s second disc, Mother and Child.

In its short existence, Tenebrae has made a considerable impact with fresh and vital re-interpretations of classic works in the choral repertoire. On this new recording, innovatory and lesser-known repertoire is drawn from contemporary sources, reflecting an exploratory approach which places the group artistically at the cutting edge.

This is a distinctive and distinguished collection of works by a number of living composers, many of whom have established themselves at the creative forefront of the choral scene in recent times.

A very classy piece of singing [and] a remarkable range of colours thanks to the mixture of voices… one of the best sounding CDs I have had on the desk this week – BBC Radio 3

This is a CD of exceptional stature. It seems to me that everything about it – performances, documentation, sound quality and, above all, the music itself – is of the highest quality – MusicWeb International

A highly dramatic work [that makes] the fullest use of  the choral resources available and with a very challenging organ part superbly played by Jeremy Filsell – International Record Review

Pott’s impassioned My Song is Love Unknown stands out as a small masterpiece of choral writing – Classical News

This is a wonderful disc, a program that all choral lovers should hear, not least because it gives proof that very fine sacred choral music is still being written – and given the first-rate attention it deserves by world-class performers –
