Tenebrae – Path of Miracles

‘Path of Miracles’ by Joby Talbot was the first major work commissioned by the award-winning professional vocal ensemble, Tenebrae, in 2005 and having received high acclaim ("an evocative odyssey" - The Times) returns this year for an extensive UK tour.

To accompany its revival, Tenebrae has commissioned a unique new choral work by Owain Park, ‘Footsteps’, which allows Tenebrae to perform alongside members from the City of Hull of Youth Choir, Hull Choral Union and Holy Trinity Church Choir, and marks Tenebrae’s fifteenth-anniversary season.

‘Path of Miracles’ is a work based on the most enduring route of Catholic pilgrimage, the great Pilgrimage to Santiago. Candlelight, singing from memory and an imaginative use of the concert space guarantees Tenebrae at its dramatic best.

Ticket prices: £16 (£8 concessions). Unreserved seating. Event is suitable for 5 years and over. 

This concert is generously supported by Hull City Council.

Doors open at 6:30pm. Join us at 6:45pm for a free a pre-concert talk with Tenebrae’s Artistic Director, Nigel Short, and composer of the world premiere commission ‘Footsteps’, Owain Park.

Would you like to find out what it takes to be a Tenebrae singer?

The Tenebrae Effect is Tenebrae’s inspiring choral development initiative that provides an insight into the elements which make Tenebrae’s sound and interpretation to music so unique. It is designed to challenge and advance every participant, whilst giving singers the opportunity to learn in a friendly and challenging environment.

Join Tenebrae’s Artistic Director, Nigel Short, for what is set to be fascinating and informative afternoon. We advise that most value is brought to those with prior choral experience who wish to improve within smaller, focused groups, and suggest participants should either be familiar with the scores or be confident sight-readers.

Chilcott: Marriage to My Lady Poverty
Stanford: The Blue Bird
Parry: My Soul There is a Country, Songs of Farewell

Scores will be provided by Tenebrae on the day. Minimum age 16.
Tickets: Free admission. This workshop is generously supported by Hull City Council.

NB there is a limited capacity for this event. Secure your place through the Hull Box Office. If you wish to support Tenebrae’s artistic programme, there will be a retiring collection at the end of the workshop.
