Described as “phenomenal” (The Times) and “devastatingly beautiful” (Gramophone Magazine), award-winning choir Tenebrae is one of the world’s leading vocal ensembles renowned for its passion and precision. Their new consort programme “Sun Moon, Sea and Stars” is an international collection of traditional songs and favourites from the Great American Songbook, arranged by Bob Chilcott and colleagues. The seemingly unlimited inventiveness of these great musical arrangers leaves no vocal trick uncovered, and dispenses with the need for any instruments. Let the voices sing you their own backing with the big band sound, bells, hurdy-gurdy and shawms, syncopated jazz rhythms and bluesy lullabies. Enter this world of choral song in all its guises, and be enchanted…
