About the Artist

London’s 17-voice Tenebrae Choir, founded and directed by former King’s Singer Nigel Short, is one of the world’s leading vocal ensembles. With a repertoire that spans five centuries and especially celebrates new works, Tenebrae adheres to its self-described mission of “passion and precision.” They graced our series in 2012 and return this year with a very special performance of Joby Talbot’s Path of Miracles, commissioned by the group in 2005. The work is based on the most enduring route of the Catholic pilgrimage, the Camino de Santiago, and the drama unfolds both musically and visually, with the choir singing from all corners of the chapel. The Times (London) called Tenebrae’s recording of Path of Miracles “an evocative odyssey”—we invite you to take part in the odyssey with eyes and ears. The program begins with a wonderful new piece by British choral composer and rising star Owain Park. The piece was also commissioned by Tenebrae as a companion to Path of Miracles, and is scored for two choirs. Princeton’s own Glee Club will join Tenebrae in this memorable, homespun collaboration.

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