Tenebrae Consort is an outstanding group of musicians, with singers hand-picked from the award winning chamber choir Tenebrae. Known for their instinctive ensemble skills, the singers and instrumentalists are directed from within the Consort by Nigel Short who leads the group to attain music making of the highest quality. Focussing on the repertoire originally written for consort performance, particularly early music, Tenebrae Consort aim to shed new interpretative light on works through the combination of both passion and precision, creating an intimate and unique concert experience. On this recording they explore classic works at the very heart of the Medieval and early-Renaissance British Choral Tradition

"... the singing on the CD is very lovely indeed..."

"...Nigel Short’s singers find an intensity here that’s never overworked... Nighel Short’s singers find an intensity here that’s never overworked... This is simplicity at once artful and artless - perfectly poised at the junction of recital and rite."
