Notes & Reviews:

An exploration of classic works at the very heart of the Medieval and early-Renaissance British Choral Tradition. Tenebrae Consort singers are hand-picked from the award winning chamber choir Tenebrae. Both singers and instrumentalists are directed from within the Consort by Nigel Short. Focusing on repertoire originally written for consort performance, particularly early music, Tenebrae Consort aim to shed new interpretative light on their chosen repertoire

BBC Music Magazine, May 2014
The performance of Tallis's Lamentations is majestically dark and intense, displaying this group's famous sensitivity toward musical structure, as well as their exquisite harmonic control...Only the vibrato in the lower voices detracts occasionally from the textural unity.

The Observer, 20th April 2014
The singing of the gentle psalms is hypnotically pure..Though the settings are restrained, the effect is powerful, helped by John Sheppard's Compline respond, In manus tuas. A brave and unusual disc.
