Tenebrae's 15th anniversary tour

Tenebrae, founder & director Nigel Short, is embarking on a tour to celebrate the group's 15th anniversary,  opening on Thursday 18 May 2017 in Hull (UK City of Culture 2017). The choir will be performing Path of Miracles (the ensemble's first major commission in 2005), Joby Talbot's choral work based on the Pilgrimage to Santiago.

Alongside this there is a newly commissioned work, Owain Park's Footsteps, which sees Tenebrae perform alongside community/youth choirs based near the touring venues. Each choir will receive a workshop from Tenebrae professionals and a range of online resources including scores, guide audio tracks, performance tips and background context.

Further dates on the tour include Bath Festival (24 May), St David’s Cathedral (2 June), Voices of London Festival (7 July), Cheltenham Festival (12 July), Cambridge Summer Music Festival (28 July), Exeter Cathedral (15 September), Truro (16 September), Lammermuir Festival (23 September), City of Derry International Choral Festival (27 October) and Canterbury Festival (28 October).
