The award-winning vocal ensemble Tenebrae, under the direction of conductor Nigel Short, was the first ever group to be multi-nominated in the same category for the BBC Music Magazine Awards (2012), their recording of Victoria’s Requiem securing the accolade for Best Choral Performance.

Most Christian liturgies are strongly associated with singing, but none more so than those of the Eastern Orthodox Churches. Tenebrae’s programme includes some little-known gems, rarely heard outside Russia, as well as familiar favourites from this vast choral repertoire.
