Nigel Short, Founder/Director
Tenebrae is a professional
chamber choir, from Great Britain, founded by Nigel Short & Barbara Pollock. Often performing by candlelight, the choir creates an atmosphere of spiritual and musical
reflection, where medieval chant & renaissance works are interspersed with contemporary compositions to create an ethereal mood of contemplation.
Its members are drawn from many distinguished choirs: the Monteverdi Choir, the choirs of Westminster Abbey & Cathedral, and King’s College Cambridge.
Many of Tenebrae’s singers have worked with
leading vocal groups, including I Fagiolini, Tallis Scholars, Swingle Singers, and The King’s Singers. Contributing to the dramatic qualities of Tenebrae’s performing style are singers from Britain’s two major opera houses, Covent Garden and English National Opera.
