Renaissance Glories

Alonso Lobo Versa est in luctum
Allegri Miserere, mei Deus
Tomás Luis de Victoria Requiem, 1605

Described as ‘phenomenal’ (The Times) and ‘devastatingly beautiful’ (Gramophone), the award-winning choir Tenebrae is one of the world’s leading vocal ensembles, renowned for its passion and precision. This performance centres on their award-winning interpretation of music from the Golden Age, including Tomás Luis de Victoria’s Requiem Mass of 1605, a luminous masterpiece with a humanity and beauty that speaks to hearers across four centuries, and Allegri’s famous and unforgettable Miserere.
