Notes & Reviews:

  • The twentieth album from the Tenebrae choir, under the direction of founder, director and internationally acclaimed conductor Nigel Short
  • A selection of little-known gems alongside some of the most celebrated sacred music from the Russian Orthodox Church
  • Detailed notes and sung texts in English translation included.
  • 'The choir Tenebrae is unbeatable. Tenebrae is current master of the Russian Sound.' - Classic FM

The Telegraph, 23rd January 2014
There is a distinctive timbre to this repertoire that Tenebrae catches to elevating effect. Your average Russian church choir would sing with more of an edge to the tone, but, on the other hand, this music was composed for choirs of top calibre. And Tenebrae is certainly one of those.

The Times, 18th January 2014
...a beautifully blended, spaciously paced journey through late 19th and early 20th century Russian liturgical music. The basses are phenomenal, descending to their sepulchral bottom B flats; the tenors and sopranos sound a little too tidy and British at times, but the overall sound is gorgeous.
