Tenebrae

Nigel Short, director

SPIVEY HALL DEBUT

Tenebrae enthralls audiences with the power and intimacy of the human voice. Under the inspired direction of Nigel Short (a former member of the King’s Singers), this virtuosic British chamber choir sings with passion, technical finesse and an utterly mesmerizing balance and poise. “Tenebrae’s precision,dynamic range, unanimity of sound and musicality were nothing short of astonishing…It was breathtakingly beautiful. One would be hard pressed to imagine a better performance”(Cleveland Classical).

“Devastatingly beautiful” (Gramophone)

“Tenebrae are special… exemplary performances, lucid.” (The Guardian)
