The solemn sound of four trombones introduces a magnificent programme featuring one of the world’s greatest choirs and centred on the great motets that Bruckner composed as an expression of his Catholic faith, and to echo around just such a resonant space as Ampleforth Abbey. The acclaimed voices of Tenebrae will also be heard in two of James MacMillan’s most evocative choral works.

‘the ethereal vocal purity of Tenebrae… was like heaven on earth’ – The Scotsman
