Tenebrae visits Harrisonburg

Revered by critics and audiences as Britain’s finest chamber choir, Tenebrae makes a rare visit to the U.S. for a three city tour Nov. 4-6.

Founded and directed by former King’s Singer and choral expert Nigel Short, the 20-voice choir blends the passion of a large cathedral choir with the precision of a chamber ensemble to create a unique and enchanting sound, one which is as effective in medieval chant as in contemporary works.

With an impressive discography of fifteen critically acclaimed recordings, Tenebrae recently completed its first recording project for Decca Classics.  The CD is slated for release Nov. 7 in the UK and early 2012 in the U.S. and features the music of composer Paul Mealor, whose moving Ubi Caritas was performed at the recent royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Tenebrae performs in Harrisonburg Nov. 5. Here are the details:
