Notes & Reviews:

"Tenebrae here exquisitely conveys the the flowing relationships between its six voices...The group presents the work with elegant subtlety, allowing the full detail of tonal colouration to shine through unencumbered. The abnegation of wordly misery in lines such as "My soul is weary of my life" is echoed in the less well-known but equally absorbing "Versa est in luctum"" -The Independent*****

"here is music of essential simplicity and spiritual depth. Tenebrae's performance, directed by Nigel Short, is gently sustained, immaculately balanced and wrapped in a luminous acoustic...If you have ever developed a resistance to Renaissance polyphony, this could be the disc to make you think again." -Financial Times*****

"Short finds a musical dramaturgy to match that of the text. The Requiem is written for six voices, but this choir of 20 never seems lumbering or unbalanced. They are perfectly tuned (listen to the exquisite poise of the Agnus Dei), and one is rarely aware of intrusive individual singers. The acoustic has a long echo, but the sound is kept nicely in focus. This recording does justice both to the genius of Victoria and to the musicality of Tenebrae." -BBC Music Magazine*****(BBC Music Magazine Choral & Song Choice - June 2011)
