THE TENEBRAE EFFECT: BACHFEST - Workshop

2:30 PM14:30

THE TENEBRAE EFFECT: BACHFEST - Workshop

The Tenebrae Effect is Tenebrae’s inspiring choral development initiative that provides an insight into the elements which make Tenebrae’s sound and interpretation to music so unique. It is designed to challenge and advance every participant, whilst giving singers the opportunity to learn in a friendly and challenging environment.

Join Tenebrae’s Artistic Director, Nigel Short, and members of Tenebrae for what is set to be fascinating and informative afternoon. We advise that most value is brought to those with prior choral experience and suggest participants should either be familiar with the scores or be confident sight-readers.

The Bach motets to be studied, sung and enjoyed are the first and last chorale ‘Jesu, meine Freude’ BWV 227, the first chorus of ‘Komm, Jesu, komm’ BWV 229 and the motet ‘Das ist je gewißlich wahr’ SWV 277 by Heinrich Schütz.

Scores can be hired on the day for a £1. Minimum age 16.
