THIS EVENT IS PART OF PERTH FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS

Mixing iconic choral works with music by some of today’s most exciting composers, this varied programme is centred around themes of rest. Joel Thompson’s virtuosic new work is a particular highlight: written in 16 parts, A Prayer for Deliverance (2021) perfectly showcases Tenebrae’s core values of passion and precision.

The second half features Herbert Howells’ Requiem – surely one of the most moving works in the English choral repertoire. Associated with the untimely death of Howells’ young son Michael, the work remained unknown until it was finally published just three years before Howells’ own death in 1983.

'Unaccompanied choral singing comes no better than this: in blend, accuracy, precision, commitment.' The Guardian

'For purity and precision of tone, and flawless intonation, Nigel Short’s chamber choir Tenebrae is pretty much unbeatable.' The Times
