On Eagles Wings


Nigel Short leads Tenebrae in a new album of sacred and jazz inspired choral works by Alexander L’Estrange, one of Britain’s most popular living choral composers.

L’Estrange’s works add a jazz-infused chordal depth and a roving harmonic eye to Howell’s declamatory muscularity and modal palette. It’s attractive, approachable music, with nothing contrived or patronising about it – Gramophone

Vivid, varied and completely satisfying – Choir & Organ

The choir masterfully interprets all the works to perfection and gains power and warmth from one piece to the next, offering to its listeners deep bass sounds as well as the brilliant homogeneity of voices – BachTrack

On the showing of this disc, Alexander L’Estrange is the go-to person for evocative and striking small scale new commissions, something lyrically attractive with some luscious harmonies… Each item is perfectly lovely with the fine performances of Tenebrae giving us plenty of magical moments – Planet Hugill
