Tenebrae, one of the premier vocal ensembles of England, brings its signature work, Joby Talbot’s Path of Miracles, to Duke Chapel for an assuredly stunning performance. Formed in 2001 by former King’s Singer Nigel Short, Tenebrae quickly established a reputation for theatrical programming and precise performances in sacred and secular spaces. Its musical passion has led to several awards (including two BBC Music Magazine awards), nominations, and notable orchestral engagements.

Path of Miracles (2005), Tenebrae’s first major commission, explores the geography of the pilgrimage to Santiago through four movements. With a libretto by Robert Dickinson, Talbot’s composition brings together texts from medieval and modern sources and music from east Asia and ancient hymns. Singing from memory and in candlelight, Tenebrae dramatically animates the pilgrimage for the audience. To celebrate its fifteenth anniversary, Tenebrae commissioned Footsteps by Owain Park, a harmonically lavish piece which will feature Tenebrae performing alongside singers from the Duke Chapel Music program.
