Nigel Short director
† with Cheltenham Youth Chamber Choir

Owain Park Footsteps † (14’)
Joby Talbot Path of Miracles (63’)

In their 15th anniversary year, celebrated vocal ensemble Tenebrae revive their major commission from 2005, Joby Talbot’s Path of Miracles. Admired in The Times as ‘an evocative odyssey’, this celebrated work evokes the great European pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. Candlelight, singing from memory and an imaginative use of space guarantees Tenebrae at its dramatic best.

Joby Talbot’s ambitious a cappella Path of Miracles is little short of a musical miracle in itself… It is a tour de force and absolutely stunning

Venue

Tewkesbury Abbey

A stunning Abbey church, consecrated in 1121. Lying at the southern edge of Tewkesbury’s old town, the Abbey quietly dominates the land and skyline with its long nave, Norman arches and “probably the largest and finest Romanesque tower in England” (Pevsner). The building provides a breath-taking setting for Music Festival events.

With a seating capacity of 750, this gorgeous building is perfect for roof-raising choral and organ music.
