Tenebrae in a church.

Described as “phenomenal” (The Times) and “devastatingly beautiful” (Gramophone magazine), the award-winning choir Tenebrae, directed by Nigel Short, is one of the world’s leading vocal ensembles, renowned for its passion and precision.

Tenebrae’s festive concert at Saffron Hall will set the scene for Christmas in an uplifting and inspiring programme to include seasonal favourites such as Britten’s glorious Ceremony of Carols.
