Product Description


technical comment

  • Internationally-renowned chamber choir Tenebrae return with a new collection of British part songs and choral works. As well as being a celebration of compositions by British composers, the disc also marks Shakespeare’s anniversary year with a selection of works based on his texts, including the much loved works by Vaughan Williams and a lesser-known set by Herbert Murrill. Perhaps the least recognisable composer name on this disc, Murrill (1909-1952) is one of a select group of composers who – through war or ill-health – died at a tragically young age and whose works were subsequently neglected during the second half of the century.

    MURRILL: Two Songs from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night: O Mistress Mine, Come Away, Death
    VAUGHAN WILLIAMS: Three Shakespeare Songs:
    Full Fathom Five, The Cloud-Capp’d Towers, Over Hill, Over Dale
    ELGAR: Four Part-Songs, Op. 54:
    There is Sweet Music, Deep in My Soul, O Wild, West Wind, Owls
    Ernest WALKER: Soft Music
    Judith BINGHAM: The Drowned Lovers
    STANFORD: The Blue Bird, Op. 119, On Time, Op. 142
    HARVEY: Song of June
    BRIDGE: Autumn, Music, When Soft Voices Die, The Bee
    CHILCOTT: The Modern Man I Sing: The Runner, The Last Invocation, One’s-Self I Sing
