Nigel Short, conductor
Filmed in the stunning surroundings of St Augustine’s Kilburn Church in London, this beautiful film gives fans of this exquisite British choral ensemble the opportunity to experience a Tenebrae concert in the comfort of your own home.
Tenebrae performs a poignant sequence of Renaissance choral works, opening with Tallis’ If ye Love Me. Performed regularly by choirs of all shapes and sizes, this simple motet is perhaps one of the most well-loved in the repertoire, but until now this miniature masterpiece hasn’t featured in the ensemble’s recording output. The program also includes Byrd’s iconic Ne irascaris Domine, the text of which is achingly apt for the present time. While Byrd was lamenting the fate of Catholics in a newly Protestant England, today we find our cities deserted and forlorn as we struggle to bring the COVID-19 pandemic under control. The program concludes with Taedet anima mea, the opening movement of Victoria’s Requiem Mass, 1605, also featured on Tenebrae’s award-winning recording of the same name.
