Info for Russian Treasures

Russian Treasures is the 20th album from award-winning professional choir, Tenebrae, and the first release on new label Bene Arte, established exclusively to record the choir and associated artists. Russian choral music has been a feature in Tenebrae s concert performances since the choir s inception and over the years they have worked extensively with Russian language coaches whilst nurturing their own characteristics of passion and precision to deliver a special and heartfelt tribute to the music of these great composers. This disc was inspired by the rare manuscripts collected by director Nigel Short during his travels around Russia. The exquisite collection includes some little-known gems, rarely heard outside Russia and never before recorded in the UK, as well as some familiar favourites from this vast area of choral repertoire.

"Tenebrae gets closer than many another Anglo- Saxon outfit in majestic interpretations with a beautiful bloom on the recorded sound'...'Here is a chance to discover the riches of Russian choral repertoire over the centuries" (Choir & Organ)

"An extraordinary performance" (Classic FM)

"This music was composed for choirs of top calibre. Tenebrae is certainly one of those." (The Daily Telegraph)

"…a beautifully blended, spaciously paced journey'... 'The basses are phenomenal... the overall sound is gorgeous." (The Times)
