Few can argue with Tenebrae’s international stature as one of the most competent, versatile, exciting and passionate vocal ensembles in the world today.
The beauty of Tenebrae’s perfectly blended sound coupled with near-flawless technique is showcased in this recording, featuring a selection of their favourite concert repertoire to create a performance worthy of anyone’s collection.
