Exquisite, transcendent choral music by a world-leading vocal ensemble, renowned for its passion and precision.

Conducted by former King’s singer Nigel Short, this award-winning a cappella choir brings two programs to Sydney: the darkly expressive music of Tomás Luis de Victoria in Masterworks of the Renaissance; and inspiring modern miniatures by Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Holst and others, starring mezzo soprano Martha McLorinan as soloist, in Music of the Spheres.

For Music of the Spheres, Tenebrae have gathered some of Britain’s greatest poets and composers: Shakespeare, Shelley, Byron, Tennyson and Milton, in settings by Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Holst and others.
