Tenebrae, the award-winning choir founded and directed by Nigel Short, will be joined by Truro Cathedral's choristers for a performance as part of its 15th anniversary celebration tour.

The group will be at the cathedral to perform Joby Talbot’s groundbreaking work, Path of Miracles, and a new commission from Owain Park entitled Footsteps, and the choristers will join Tenebrae for the latter.

Path of Miracles by Joby Talbot was the first major work commissioned by Tenebrae in 2005, when it received dazzling reviews. To accompany its revival, Tenebrae has commissioned a new work by Owain Park, Footsteps, which sees Tenebrae perform alongside community/youth choirs based near the touring venues. The choristers will receive a workshop from Tenebrae professionals and a range of online resources including scores, guide audio tracks, performance tips and background context.

Choir founder Nigel Short said: “This is a significant time for Tenebrae on the brink of the group’s anniversary tour. It’s been twelve years since we last performed Path Of Miracles and we are thrilled to be touring it alongside Owain Park’s new work which will be premièred in Hull, the 2017 UK City of Culture.

“Artistic excellence and dramatic performances have always been at the heart of what we do. Wherever possible, Tenebrae performs music from memory, by candlelight and using the spatial opportunities afforded by the venue to create an immersive audience experience. For the first time this year, we will be able to share our approach with community and youth choirs across Britain.”
