Award-winning choir Tenebrae returns to the Hall with a wide-ranging programme of music composed for the Virgin Mary. Over the centuries, the Queen of Heaven has inspired countless artists to create some of their most exquisite masterpieces, and this collection is one of dramatic contrasts. The richness of Verdi and Grieg is juxtaposed with the serenity of Gregorian chant, and Parsons’ sixteenth-century setting of the Ave Maria sits alongside Bruckner’s high Romantic interpretation of the same text. A rare performance of Arnold Bax’s Mater ora filium is a particular highlight.
