Described as “phenomenal” (The Times) and “devastatingly beautiful” (Gramophone Magazine), London-based choir Tenebrae is one of the world’s leading vocal ensembles, renowned for its passion and precision. Under the direction of Nigel Short, Tenebrae performs at major festivals and venues across the globe, including the BBC Proms, Edinburgh International Festival, Leipzig Gewandhaus (Germany) and Melbourne Festival (Australia). Tenebrae is frequently engaged with the world’s finest orchestras, regularly appearing alongside the Academy of Ancient Music, Aurora Orchestra and Britten Sinfonia, alongside recording projects with the London Symphony and BBC Symphony Orchestras.


In 2012 Tenebrae was the first-ever ensemble to be multi-nominated in the same category for the BBC Music Magazine Awards, securing the accolade of ​‘Best Choral Performance’ for the choir’s recording of Victoria’s Requiem Mass, 1605. The following year Tenebrae’s Fauré Requiem with the London Symphony Orchestra was nominated for the Gramophone Awards, having been described as ​“the very best Fauré Requiem on disc” and ​“the English choral tradition at its zenith” (Richard Morrison, Chief Music Critic, The Times). In 2018 Tenebrae received a GRAMMY® nomination for Music of the Spheres, its album of part songs from the British Isles.
