Virtuoso saxophonist Christian Forshaw is joined by a consort of Tenebrae singers, in an ethereal sequence of penitential settings for Passiontide. Combining elements of ancient and modern to stunning effect, Forshaw and Tenebrae bring new colors and context to music by Orlando Gibbons, Thomas Tallis, and Hildegard von Bingen in a series of new arrangements and compositions. Described as “phenomenal” (The Times) and “devastatingly beautiful” (Gramophone Magazine), the award-winning choir Tenebrae is one of the world’s leading vocal ensembles, renowned for its passion and precision.
