Notes & Reviews:

Internationally-renowned chamber choir Tenebrae return with a new collection of British part songs and choral works. As well as being a celebration of compositions by British composers, the disc also marks Shakespeares anniversary year with a selection of works based on his texts, including the much loved works by Vaughan Williams and a lesser-known set by Herbert Murrill. Perhaps the least recognizable composer name on this disc, Murrill (1909-1952) is one of a select group of composers who through war or ill-health died at a tragically young age and whose works were subsequently neglected during the second half of the century.
