Award-winning choir Tenebrae presents a dramatic programme with a message of peace at its heart – the longing for peace, and the beauty, innocence and simplicity which can accompany it.

The programme includes two works commissioned by and written for Tenebrae: Roderick Williams’ peaceful prayer, Lucis Creator optime, and Josephine Stephenson’s astonishing Into the Wreck, which features acclaimed actor Juliet Stevenson in the spoken role.
