Tenebrae join the Aurora Orchestra with mezzo soprano Dame Sarah Connolly and narrator Simon Callow for ‘A Walk with Ivor Gurney’, an album of choral music celebrating the works of Ivor Gurney whose promising career as a composer was interrupted by World War I. Alongside four pieces of Gurney’s own music are works by his contemporaries, Ralph Vaughan Williams and Herbert Howells. The recording features a new piece by Judith Bingham commissioned by Tenebrae in 2013 for the choir with Dame Sarah Connolly.

Choir & Organ

Even in a smaller space, Tenebrae always sound rich and resonant, and they carry the choral pieces here with absolute control and authority. It’s a big listen, but a compelling one and RVW’s An Oxford Elegy – one of whose dead was, of course, Gurney – is genuinely moving.

Gramophone Magazine

Here’s a nourishing, thoughtfully compiled release from Signum…Connolly teams up with Tenebrae under Nigel Short’s watchful lead to give a performance of breathtaking composure, spine-tingling atmosphere and palpable conviction…if the imaginative concept appeals, this is well worth seeking out.

The Observer

The disc’s title is from an extended piece for soloist and choir by Judith Bingham, commissioned by Tenebrae in 2013 and superbly sung by this top vocal ensemble. This is an album full of riches.

The Times

Nigel Short’s peerless Tenebrae singers, backed by the Aurora Orchestra, offer nothing but sorrowful beauty and multiple reasons to give thanks.
