WorksIn manus tuas I
Lamentations of Jeremiah II
Lamentations of Jeremiah I
Tenebrae Consort is, as you might expect, hand-picked from the award winning chamber choir Tenebrae. Known for their instinctive ensemble skills, the singers 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.
This new recording draws on the Salisbury Cathedral tradition, renowned for its ritual excellence, observation and performance, in the centuries before the Reformation. Compline, sung during Holy Week, is enhanced with Tallis’ 'Lamentations': some of the most poignant and intense polyphonic settings of sacred texts used in Passiontide. These settings for five lower voices prove not only the depth of Tallis’ devotion to the ‘old faith’ and the Catholic rites but also his mastery of the polyphonic art, and cement his rightful place as one of the greatest composers of the English Renaissance.
