Tenebrae return to the sublime music of Tomás Luis de Victoria on Signum with this recording of his timeless Tenebrae Responsories. The works mix the words of the Gospels with other texts commenting on collective suffering written around the 4th century, and would traditionally have been performed as part of a moving service in which candles are slowly extinguished to mark the progress and suffering of Christ that forms the Passion story.   Tenebrae’s previous disc of works by Victoria (Requiem Mass, 1605) won the BBC Music Magazine Award for Best Choral Album of 2012.  

 "...The eponymous choir, 13 strong, is exemplary."

Richard Lawrence - Early Music Today magazine - March-May 2014


"... This disc, like their recent recording of his [Victoria] Requiem, bridges the spiritual gulf between church and concert hall, and their appreciation of the text and its meaning is especially profound. The blend is gorgeous and awareness of individual lines and voices always serves both the music and its meaning."   *****

Rebecca Tavener - Choir & Organ magazine - January/February 2014


 "... Tenebrae and Short bring their own vision to these remarkable pieces - which is, interestingly, somewhere between a choral vision, such as that of Pro Cantione Antiqua - with conviction and in a recording that is outstanding for its clarity."

Ivan Moody - International Record Review - February 2014
