Miserere mei, Deus

Founded over 20 years ago by Nigel Short, formerly countertenor and conductor of the King’s Singers, Tenebrae are considered one of the best chamber choirs in the UK and indeed the world. Passion and precision are the cornerstones of their work; a clear, full, heavenly sound are the result. Tenebrae’s repertoire includes paragons of Renaissance polyphony and the Romantic period as well as world premieres of contemporary choral works. For their concert at a cappella 2022, we can look forward to a sensational sacred programme: works by the Spanish composers Victoria, Lobo and Padilla, along with motets by Francis Poulenc from the 1930s, and also the two impressive settings of Miserere by Italian composer Gregorio Allegri and the Scotsman James McMillan. Don’t miss it!
