Joby Talbot’s modern masterpiece Path of Miracles was first performed in 2005 following the traumatic aftermath of the July 7 bombs in London.
In celebration of Tenebrae’s 15th anniversary, the award-winning group founded and directed by Nigel Short return to this groundbreaking work alongside the premiere of a new commission by Owain Park, Footsteps, which moves through the seasons as seen by a lonely traveller.
Latin for ‘shadows’, Tenebrae’s name also refers to the religious service in which candles are successively extinguished, and both meanings offer a hint of the emotional timbre of this choir’s performances.
The evocative depths of these two works are the perfect introduction to the immersive audience experience of a group who regularly perform by candlelight, from memory and encouraging movement throughout the performance space.
