The choir's artistic director on 'In Winter's House'
Christmas has long inspired composers to write works of great beauty, reflectiveness and drama, and the new album from acclaimed choir Tenebrae explores a diverse and wonderful range of them. Placing Benjamin Britten's A Ceremony of Carols at its heart, 'In Winter's House' begins its journey in Advent, embracing composers including Bob Chilcott, Joanna Marsh, Owain Park, Vaughan Williams, Sally Beamish, Elizabeth Poston and many more in a wonderful celebration of seasonal works. In the latest Gramophone podcast, Editor Martin Cullingford meets with Tenebrae's artistic director Nigel Short to talk about the recording.
