Info for Brahms & Bruckner: Motets

Considered among the finest of contemporary vocal ensembles, the London-based Tenebrae conducted by Nigel Short have gained renown for their powerfully commanding recordings that range from medieval to contemporary works. Their latest release is no exception as Tenebrae give movingly gorgeous and intricate performances of a selection of motets by Johannes Brahms and Anton Bruckner. A portion of the proceeds from sales of this recording will be donated to MacMillan Cancer Support.

"A carefully programmed collection of motets by both composers makes for some very interesting listening. Where Brahm's choral writing bears a certain internal gravity, characterized by sharply defined harmony, Bruckner's writing is expressed with a wide-open pathos emulating well that composer's effort to effect cathedrals of musical worship (this can be heard in the Ave Maria). The vocal ensemble Tenebrae, directed by Nigel Short, is capture in well-balanced opulence. The sound is sensuously plush and warm." (C. Michael Bailey,
