Review:
 

"Nigel Short and Tenebrae have just the right balance of control and passion, reverence and exuberance that makes for such a superb performance."
The Organ

Classic FM Magazine, April 2005 ***** Best Buy
The booklet notes by David Bray are a good start. Helpfully assuming that most of us in he West aren't familiar with the Orthadox Church's liturgical and musical traditions, Bray explores both aspects, and Rachmaninov's relationship to each, with readable expertise. Vespers is the first part of the Orthodox All-Night-Vigil, which also includes Matins and Prime(the First Hour). Rachmaninov's 15 unacommpanied choral settings from these services encompass a near-miraculous range of musical imagination, while respecting the traditional chants on which they're largely based. The work's demands are extreme, with bass parts descending to suvbteranean depths, and there is also an overall need for non-stop emotional intensity of a very Russian kind. Tenebrae's success is as complete as can be imagined from singers who are not themselves Russian. Their performance was recorded live in the quite small, but warm and claer acoustic of St Asaph Cathedral in North Wales. The result is both intimate and powerfully atmospheri

Classic FM Magazine, January 2005
A specially recorded live concert of Rachmaninov's beautiful Vespers, performed by the choir Tenebrae under the baton of Nigel Short. It was recorded last September as part of the North Wales International Music Festival in Great Britain's smallest cathedral, St Asaph, just west of Chester. The choir, dressed in their rich purple cassocks, performed to a packed cathedral, lit entirely by candlelight. The All-Night Vigil is celebrated on the eve of the main feasts of the Russian Orthodox church with the purpose of showing a sense of beauty in the setting sun. It gives the congregation a chance to consider the spiritual light of Christ and the eternal light of the heavenly kingdom.
